This paper is concerned with studying the flow within a wastewater treatment tank. Brightwater Engineering Ltd has implemented a program of numerical studies investigating the constituent components of the treatment process with an aim to improve and fully understand the fluidic element. This paper concentrates on the bottom mixing layer of the flow in the tank and follows on from previous work on flow through the inlets ports. The work highlights the sensitivity of the flow within this region to small changes in velocity and distribution of the flow. This could have importance within the next stage, the flow within the treatment media.
