I am using ASIM2d and comparing results with my own model. ASIM results indicate XI=7000, XH=2700, XPAO=1000,XAUT=170,XTSS=200 and XPP=320. Is the approx MLSS of ASIM results = (0.9*(2700+1000+170)+(0.75*7000)+200)=(3480+5250+200)= 8930? Is the average P concentration in the MLSS = ((0.025*(3480)+320)*100)/8930=4.5%? Is the average P concentartion in the biomass =((0.025*3480)+320)*100/3480=11.7%? Thanks for the help with this. Jack
You are not using ASIM2d but ASM2d. ASIM is only the integration machine. If you are using the original ASM2d from the ASIM library TSS (=MLSS) already includes all particulate compounds (look into stoichiometry to see the details). You may want to consult the original papers, which have introduced ASM2 and ASM2d. The P content of MLSS is best obtained by Sum of Xi*iP / XTSS.
