It may be desirable to damp extreme fluctuations in concentration in a feed stream to a sanitary engineering process. Methods of analysis and design of completely-mixed basins to accomplish this damping are presented and illustrated for a sample of data having numerous fluctuations. Similar predictions of basin performance are found using two quite different methods of analysis. Possibilities for analysis of cases which do not conform to the basic assumptions usually required are discussed. Even more powerful analytical methods than those presented are suggested if a wider class of problems must be solved.
