Abstract: Theoretical and experimental studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Hydrodynamics Laboratory and TVA's Engineering Laboratory have established the general flow and design relationships involved in the controlled withdrawal from the bottom layer of fluid in a two-layered flow system having a discrete interface. These data allow the design of skimmer wall structures which make possible such controlled withdrawal. This paper describes the theoretical considerations, the test arrangements used to obtain the laboratory data, and presents a comparison of the laboratory and theoretical results.
