Wastewater kinematic viscosity
Wastewater Kinematic Viscosity
The kinematic viscosity of wastewater is the ratio of its dynamic (absolute) viscosity to its density. When studying fluid behavior near solid boundaries, viscosity is an important fluid property. A fluid’s viscosity is the measure of its resistance against gradual deformation due to shear stress and tensile stress. Inter-molecular friction is what causes fluid to shear when layers of fluid try to slide past one another.
Viscosity refers to the fluid’s resistance against flow. Honey is high viscous, while water is medium viscous. Gas is low viscous.
Two related measures of fluid viscosity exist
Dynamic (or absolute).
Absolute (Dynamic) Viscosity – The coefficient of absolute viscosity is an indicator of internal resistance. Dynamic (absolute viscosity) is the tangential force per area needed to move one horizontal plan with respect to another plane – at a unit velocity – while maintaining a unit distance from the fluid.
Kinematic Viscosity: A ratio of absolute (or dynamic), viscosity and density is called kinematic viscosity. This is a quantity where no force is involved. You can calculate kinematic viscosity by dividing absolute viscosity and fluid mass density.
Wastewater magazine is a trade publication that covers the wastewater industry. It covers topics such as wastewater treatment, wastewater management, and wastewater engineering.
Wastewater management is the process of handling sewage and wastewater from homes and businesses. It involves treating the water to remove contaminants and return it to the environment.
Wastewater management plan
A wastewater management plan is a plan that outlines how wastewater will be managed and treated. It should include information on the types of wastewater that will be generated, how it will be treated, and who will be responsible for managing it.
