Abstract: A three-dimensional Computational Fluid Dynamics in house model was used to simulate the dispersion of soluble substances in a river. The finite volume method was used to approximate the momentum, mass, and species conservation equations. A Cartesian coordinate system was chosen to represent the river. The Streeter-Phelps model was used to predict the concentration of organic substances and dissolved oxygen along the river. The model could also predict the impact of multiple effluents discharges. The proposed methodology is a good tool for the evaluation of the environmental impact caused for pollutants emissions in rivers. Experimental comparisons for soluble chloride dispersion were made for the Atibaia-River near REPLAN-Paulínia (major petroleum refinery in Brazil). Despite approximations imposed to the shape of the river, the results show good agreement with experimental data. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting and Fall Showcase (Cincinnati, OH 1/04/2005).
