TL;DR: A complete overview of the Activated Sludge Model (ASM) family can be found in this article, where the authors present ASM1, ASM2 and ASM3 together for the first time.
Abstract: This book has been produced to give a total overview of the Activated Sludge Model (ASM) family at the start of 2000 and to give the reader easy access to the different models in their original versions. It thus presents ASM1, ASM2, ASM2d and ASM3 together for the first time. Modelling of activated sludge processes has become a common part of the design and operation of wastewater treatment plants. Today models are being used in design, control, teaching and research. Contents This title belongs to Scientific and Technical Report Series ISBN: 9781900222242 (Print) ISBN: 9781780402369 (eBook)
