Abstract
In biofiltration systems, the gas/liquid interphase acts as a major medium for the transport of dissolved solutes into and out of the biofilm. Therefore, transfer processes can be affected by the reactor flow conditions, so an adequate characterization of this fluid flow is required in order to describe accurately the system, jointly with the biological behavior. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques have been employed as a useful tool for understanding multiphase hydrodynamics and bioch...
