The main objective of the paper is to support and illustrate recent theoretical results on the mathematical modelling of the secondary clarifier. A new settler model is compared with a traditional layer model by means of numerical simulations. Emphasis is put on the numerical solution's ability to approximate the analytical solution of the conservation law written as a non-linear partial differential equation. The new settler model is consistent in this respect. Another important conclusion is that a layer model dividing the settler into only ten layers (normally used in settler models) is too crude an approximation to capture the detailed dynamic behaviour of the settler. All simulations presented are performed with the settler models coupled to the IAWQ Activated Sludge Model No. 1.
