Reverse osmosis (RO) is widely used for the production of drinking water from brackish and sea water. In the RO process, pressure is used to separate water and salts by allowing water to pass through a semi permeable membrane leaving the salts behind. Therefore, controlling membrane fouling will help keep the productivity high. Having spacer filaments in the feed channel has been shown to reduce the concentration polarisation on the surfaces of the membrane and therefore fouling. This thesis focuses on the simulation of multiphase flow in spacer-filled channels using computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
