This paper evaluates three independently-derived steady state mechanistic substrate removal models for the rotating biological contactor RBC, intended for use by design engineers. The three models evaluated are 1 Kornegays steady state model for carbonaceous waste treatment 2 Schroeders steady state RBC design equation and 3 Grieves Pseudo-homogeneous steady state model. Utilizing a common data base, each has been assessed with respect to model calibration, adequacy of fit, relative influence exerted by various design parameters, and limitations and restrictions.
