Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is used to describe temperature, velocity and different fluid properties of different structure by using various numerical methods. It gained a huge popularity in the last few decades. Inadequate knowledge about CFD has become a major barrier for its application in different sector. In this study, it was attempted to present CFD in an easier and more accessible way to WWTP workers. One web platform has been conceptualized to be developed in such a way that it can simulate fluid flow in a sedimentation tank. Different open source tools have been used to build this platform. Django web development framework based on python programming language has been used for running simulation in a web platform. Simple simulation has been run in the web framework to make it applicable for CFD simulation. To run a complex multiphase flow simulation for a sedimentation tank, some open source CFD applications were needed to be integrated in the web platform. Those applications will run in the server machine without any direct contract with the user. The user will only get a simple web interface to run the simulation in different types of sedimentation tank and be able to take decision about the design.
This study have done about the CFD web development for sedimentation tank in wastewater treatment plant.
