The Local Discontinuous Galerkin Method for Time Dependent

Jul 25, 20060183;32;In this paper, we study the local discontinuous Galerkin (LDG) methods for nonlinear, time dependent convection diffusion systems. These methods are an extension of the Runge Kutta discontinuous Galerkin (RKDG) methods for purely hyperbolic systems to convection diffusion systems and share with those methods their high parallelizability, high order formal accuracy, and easy

Gravity clarification and thickening ScienceDirect

If the purpose is to clarify the liquid, the process is called clarification. The feed concentration to a thick ener is usually higher than that to a clarifier. Some thickeners, if correctly designed and operated, can accomplish both clarification and thickening in one stage.

How to Size a Thickener Mineral Processing amp; Metallurgy

Knowing how to size a thickener and determine the capacity required to handle a pre determined tonnage of a certain pulp, by overflowing a clear solution and obtaining the desired pulp density of thickener discharge, depends upon the settling rate of that particular pulp. The settling rate of any pulp is easily determined by simple laboratory tests such as outlined below Laboratory Test

Lamella clarifier

Lamella clarifier performance can be improved by the addition of flocculants and coagulants. These chemicals optimise the settling process and cause a higher purity of overflow water by ensuring all smaller solids are settled into the sludge underflow. A further advantage of the lamella clarifier is its distinct absence of mechanical, moving parts.
