Sediment retention in rectangular storage tanks: Computations with a mass transport model and comparison with laboratory experiments.

M. Jensen
ABSTRACT A linear convection-dispersion-deposition model, in 1 length dimension (CDD1), for a rectangular storage tank, is applied for computing the variation, over distance and time, of the vertical mean concentration C of suspended sediment. It is assumed, that the deposition rate to the bottom is proportional to C. The deposition velocity Vp, is the constant of proportionality. The model is used, for steady tank flow velocity V, to calculate the mass distribution (suspended mass +...
