6.1 REVIEW OF EXPERIMENTAL LABORATORY AND PILOT-PLANT STUDIES

In the previous chapters, the physical basis and theory of aeration, and the description of the aeration system components were discussed. This chapter reviews experimental and laboratory pilot-plant studies relating to aeration. The description of the physical processes and the empirical data are needed to support and validate the theoretical basis of aeration.
