Computer Simulation Optimizes Design of UV Disinfection Reactors
Computer simulation can substantially improve the design of ultraviolet (UV) technology used to disinfect water. In UV disinfection design, bacteria and viruses must flow in close proximity to a UV lamp for a sufficient period of time to greatly damage DNA, which adsorbs UV radiation. Without a method to determine the effectiveness of a proposed UV system design, engineers have often been forced to over-design systems to ensure their ability to meet regulatory requirements, substantially increasing their cost.
