Theorical research

Theoretical research wants to give insights on the potentiality of an innovative solution, giving indications to future laboratory experimental tests. An example of theoretical research is the study of innovative prototypes of constructed wetlands with numerical modelling simulations.

Recently, IRIDRA has started to use, in collaboration with different university institutes (Politecnico di Torino, Boku university of Wien, Universitat Polytecnica di Catalunya) among the most advanced mathematical models developed by the Scientific Community (Hydrus Wetland Module. BIO_PORE). The aim is to better understand the internal removal processes occurring in constructed wetlands facing sudden changes in influent wastewater loads. Into the future, IRIDRA aims to theoretically investigate new prototypes of intensified constructed wetlands with numerical modelling simulations.

In the following, some of the most relevant results on theoretical research done by IRIDRA.
