Improving sediment monitoring strategies based on analysing heat transfer processes in sewer pipes
Paper presented in 10th International Conference on Sewer Processes and Networks
A generally-applicable approach was developed to identify potential locations where sediment accumulation occur based on sewer network hydrodynamics.
Sewer network thermodynamics were used to simulate sewer temperature patterns from which sediment accumulation could be estimated.
The combination of thermal-hydraulic dynamic analyses led to an effective strategy for determining the deployment of sediment accumulation monitoring devices.
