Journal Article
Tota-Maharaj, K., Nounu, G., & Ramroop, N. (2020). Modelling of quadratic-surface sludge digesters by smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) – Finite element (FE) methods. Archives of Hydro-Engineering and Environmental Mechanics, 67(1-4), 35-53. https://doi.org/10.1515/heem-2020-0003

The quadric-surfaced sludge digester (QSD), also known as the egg-shaped sludge digester, has proven its advantages over traditional cylindrical digesters recently. A reduction in operational cost is the dominant factor. Its shell can be described as...

The quadric-surfaced sludge digesters (QSDs), sometimes referred to as egg-shaped sludge reactors, are becoming more popular within wastewater treatment works as of recently. These tanked systems with their shell structure provide a surface free of d...
