webcast will introduce participants to the basics of wastewater treatment plant
modeling. Five topics of interest to
practitioners will be addressed, including: 1) the benefits and application of models; 2) what is
modeling and what can be done with modeling; 3) an introduction to the
structured approach to a modeling project and where more information is
available; 4) data requirements for a modeling project; and lastly 5) modeling
All of the presenters are leading experts in the modeling field and have been involved in both
consulting projects and model development. They will share their vast experience
with the audience, as the participants are guided through an explanation of the modeling process from the suitability of a model for a
project, through the setup of the project, the data required, and finally the
practical pitfalls that should be avoided.
Webcast Presentation Handouts
treatment modeling has become a standard engineering tool and is used consistently
in consulting projects for plant design and optimization. The maturity of
these models is reflected by the recent introduction of modeling and simulation
guidelines like the GMP Scientific & Technical Report or WEF's Manual of Practice (MOP) 31.
The objective of these publications is to help engineers carry out simulation
studies more efficiently by using a structured approach and prevent typical
