Due Date: 25/10/07 CIVL242: Water and Wastewater Engineering Filtration Assignment 12 A rapid sand filter with a bed depth of 60cm contains only sand that has a sieve analysis given in the accompanying table. The filter is to be operated at a loading rate of 120 m 3 /m 2 /d and temperature of 15 o C. The porosity for the filter is 0.39 and the sphericity of the particles is 0.92. Sieve no. Percentage(by weight) of sand retained mean size, mm 16-18 1.6 1.09 18-20 5.3 0.92 20-25 12.5 0.77 25-30 25.1 0.65 30-35 23.4 0.54 35-40 15.1 0.46 40-45 13.8 0.38 45-50 2.2 0.32 50-100 0.8 0.27 a) What are the effective size and uniformity coefficient for the medium? (U=d 60 /d 10 ) b) Determine the initial head loss through the medium.

The uniformity coefficients are 1.5 for each of the media. Perform all calculations for a temperature of 10 o C. Divide each medium into three layers on a weight basis. (a) Calculate the mintial headloss through the bed if the loading rate is 200m 3 /m 2 / d. Given: ρ = 999.7 kg/m 3 , μ=1.307 x 10-3 N·s/m 2...
