Abstract: A preliminary investigation into the feasibility of using a hot-water plume to intercept and entrain a cold underflow is presented. The investigation involved an adaptation of existing plunge-flow, underflow and plume theory to develop a theoretical solution for the problem and an experimental verification of this solution in a laboratory model lake. The flow parameter range over which this system is successful and the assumptions made in the analysis are discussed.
