The simultaneous removal of nitrogen as well as organic substances is one of important characteristics of the oxidation ditch process. To describe this phenomena, synthetic kinetic models including the rates of BOD oxidation, nitrification, denitrification, DO and alkalinity changes, and sludge growth were proposed in this study. Rate equations for these mechanisms were mainly based on Monod type kinetics taking into account several limiting effects among these mechanisms. To develop the design procedure, these kinetic models were combined with the tank-in-series model having circulating and back flows. They were analyzed numerically for typical design and operating conditions. From these computer simulations, successful results to explain these complicated phenomena and several design and operating bases were obtained.
