Scholarcy highlights

  • A dimensionless governing equation was formulated for a cross-flow RO process in which the local variation of concentration polarization was rigorously considered
  • It was shown in this formulation that the cross-flow RO process could be fully characterized with a single dimensionless parameter
  • The significance of local variation of concentration polarization was demonstrated, and the operations of RO under various conditions were simulated and investigated with the newly developed model
