Numerical Simulation of Impacts on Marine Environment by Sewage Discharge
Tianjin Research Institute for Water Transport Engineering, M.O.T., Tianjin, China
Numerical simulation on tidal field of sewage marine disposal engineering area was carried out by using the MIKE3 numerical model. The impact of volatile phenol of waste water, cyanide and COD on water environment was predicted. Results show that great changes of pollutant content have taken place in each water layer because of pollution discharge. The pollution discharge into deep water has the greatest effect on bottom water quality, and the impact decreases gradually from the bottom to the surface. It shows that pollution discharge into deep water is helpful to control the pollutant increment of surface water.
Key words: MIKE3 / 3D numerical simulation / sewage marine disposal engineering
