Sandia National Laboratories utilizes computational modeling at multiple
scales and resolutions to address problems in water safety, security,
and sustainability. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models are used
to simulate fundamental processes such as mixing phenomena along membrane
surfaces and pipe junctions, and insights gained from these rigorous
models are used to optimize designs or implement improved models
of larger-scale systems. In some cases, CFD models are used to understand
important parameters and processes in complex systems (such as UV
disinfection systems) to determine the performance and help facilitate
the installation of these systems at various sites.
The following links provide an overview of some of the projects at Sandia
involving computational modeling to address our nation's growing needs
in the areas of water safety, security, and sustainability.
