Due Date: 13/10/05 CIVL242: Water and Wastewater Engineering Assignment 4 1. Determine the clear-water headloss in a filter bed composed of 12 in of uniform anthracite with an average size of 1.6 mm and 12 in of uniform sand with an average size of 0.5 mm for a filtration rate of 160 L/m 2 ·min. Assume that the operation temperature is 20 o C. Use the Carmen-Kozeny for computing the headloss. Use shape factor are 0.73 and 0.82 for the anthracite and sand, respectively. The porosity of both layers is 0.4. Given: ρ=998.2 kg/m 3 , μ=1.002 x 10 -3 N·s/m 2 2. A rapid sand filter has a bed depth of 0.7 m. It is composed of sand grains that
