A CFD-based model for simulating TiO2 coated photocatalytic reactors used in drinking water treatment applications was preliminarily evaluated. The model includes aspects of hydrodynamics, mass transfer, UV-radiation field, and surface chemical reactions. Appropriate models for each of the associated physicochemical phenomena were experimentally or analytically examined. Once defined and evaluated, the individual models were integrated into a CFD-based model for simulating photocatalytic reactor performance, which was experimentally evaluated.
