Abstract

The results of the experiment of dewatering analysis carried out on a municipal sludge were recorded. Similarly, analytical mathematics was used to develop an equation to calculate volume of filtrate. The two results were plotted in graphs and comparisons were made. The results show very close relationships between the two results. In fact in most cases the two results were almost overlapping. For example after 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 hours, the volumes of filtrates are: 0.0037 m3 (model), 0.004 m3 (experiment), 0.005 (model), 0.0055 (experiment), 0.006 (model), 0.0067 (experiment), 0.0066 (model), 0.0065 (experiment) and 0.0065 (model), 0.0064 (experiment). This has shown that the experiment was carried out very well and that, mathematical equations can be used directly in order to calculate the volume of filtrate and the values can be nearly the same with model results.
