This article presents a case study of numerical simulation of effluent in Konarak plant. by collecting data related to the case study which includes data such as output water characteristics of desalination (water concentration, discharge, temperature, outlet geometry), environmental conditions including wind speed in the region, the velocity of water flow, tidal velocity, tidal depth, and sea surface profile, to launch a numerical distribution model pollution at the seashore have been investigated using Cormix11 software at different depths and the effect of important parameters of effluent distribution on distribution and considering environmental conditions have been studied.
Numerical results show that increasing the discharge of effluent leads to more salinity in the sea. but in some cases, it can be managed with flow velocity and tidal time so that increasing discharge has less effect on water distribution in the sea.
