GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
English term or phrase:
reaching steady state after an operation or after switching
There seem to be two different sorts of tests for settling. The reference I posted seems to be speaking about the settling of liquids which I believe refers to particles precipitating out of a solution and settling to the bottom. The other kind of test I saw on the internet is more about a mechanical or computer settling. In that case I think it would be a falling into place but I am less sure of that one -- I read less about it and I am less familiar with it.

testing for settling
Explanation: Yes. This seems to be a term for testing or modeling for settling.
"In BioWin's quasi two-dimensional approach, when an SBR is in settling mode the
reactor volume is divided into a grid of individual cells, each modelled as a biological
settling zone. In a single tank SBR this results in 30 individual biological settling zones,
each of which is performing all of the BioWin biological, chemical and settling operation
calculations. This is very computationally demanding and may result in decreased
simulation speed for SBR systems (compared to simulation of conventional activated
sludge systems). The benefit of this approach, however, is the ability to capture
phenomena such as short-circuiting in continuous feed systems which is not possible in
other simulators. In BioWin 3.1 there is now an option to choose a "simplified" approach
when simulating the settling mode of an SBR. This option is called the "Fast
approximate simulation" and tells BioWin to only consider the settling operations that
are occurring. Since no biology or chemistry is required, BioWin only needs to consider
the total solids concentration (not the individual state variables) and consequently the
simulation calculations can be done much more rapidly."
