Hydrodynamic modelling, Brine effluent, Marine outfalls, Dilution.


This paper presents a review on hydrodynamic modelling of desalination plants brine effluent marine outfalls. Brine effluent is a byproduct of desalination plants that must be safely discharged with little environmental impacts. Several researchers have been studying the behavior of brine effluent disposal to the sea using marine outfalls but due to its complex behavior yet it is not completely understood, where the international design standards and specifications are limited and there is no unified design approach for the marine outfalls. The dilution and dispersion ability of the ambient water body are discussed. The outfall inclination angle and current speed are also investigated.
