Online course: Modelling Sanitation Systems

The registration deadline has expired.

This course from IHE Delft focuses on the application of mathematical models for simulation by computers in the field of the urban water cycle, urban drainage, sewerage and a selection of sanitation systems.

For whom?

The course is designed for professionals actively involved in the urban water cycle and/or wastewater treatment or those who have an interest in model application from a research point of view.

Basic knowledge of urban drainage and sewerage, wastewater treatment processes, biochemistry and microbiology is required for successful completion of the course.

Learning objectives

Upon completion, the participant should be able to:

  • To describe the origin and application of integrated modelling and the use of GIS as support tool.To understand calibration, validation and sensitivity analysis. To be able to use AQUASIM in solving the assignments
  • Learn how to set up a small model in EPA-SWMM, run the model and look at the modelling results. Understand the application of the model by a demonstration of a case study in Palestine
  • To understand the history and development of activated sludge models (ASM) and understand how a wastewater treatment plant is modelled
  • To understand the concept of anaerobic modeling and the use of ADM1 by a demonstration of the application in the dynamic phase of the reactor start-up using BioWIn
  • To learn about process modelling, fouling modelling and cost modelling in the field of MBR's. To use AQUASIM to get an understanding of the importance of several parameters when describing the behaviour of an MBR system.
  • To apply AQUASIM to understand the importance of several parameters when describing the behaviour of a biofilm reactor system.
  • To apply AQUASIM to understand the processes and parameters involved in pond modelling
