Is ASIM applicable to the modelling of facultative waste stabilisation ponds? If so, would there be any limitations with this? Any responce would be greatly appreciated, this is for my Masters thesis! Time is running out!
We do not have any experience with facultative ponds. The problem is, that you would have to develop your own biokinetic model, which includes the anaerobic and photosynthetic processes. Once you have such a model you could most probably enter this model into ASIM. Further you may have to model sedimentation which might be approached by including a sludge blanket in the secondary clarifier. I would hesitate to just use ASM1 to ASM3 for modelling such a system.
