Abstract : The report describes the work undertaken to represent and identify mathematical models of biological waste treatment as applied to laboratory sized aeration basins. Both the mixing and the kinetics of laboratory aeration basins were examined. Reproducible experimental data were easy to obtain. The basin parameters for mixing and kinetics computed from the data enabled the models to be fit reasonably well if care is taken to use experimental data in the steady state. (Author)
