A numerical model of flow and sediment in secondary clarifiers is presented. The numerical model is an attempt to describe the complex and coupled hydraulic and sediment phenomena in secondary clarifiers by describing the turbulent flow field and the transport/dispersion of suspended solids. The numerical model is discussed and compared with full scale measurements. The achieved results should be understood as the first step towards a numerical model for secondary clarifiers and further research will be necessary.
