Hydraulic Characterisation of Deposits and Review of Sediment Modelling

 
Price: £22  

Project aim is to identify the hydraulic characteristics of loose iron deposits and assess capabilities of sediment modelling to manage discolouration. The report is based on a combination of theoretical desk studies and the results of two field trials. Recommendations are given for typical sediment characteristics and values including specific gravity, particle size and sediment concentrations. Sediment transport theory and sediment analysis modules linked to hydraulic analysis software have been reviewed. Guidance is provided on assessing the risk of a discoloration when undertaking a specific network operation.
