Abstract: The Cornell Mixing Zone Expert System (CORMIX) is an integrated software package for the analysis, prediction, and design of aqueous toxic or conventional pollutant discharges into watercourses. Subsystem CORMIX1 is for the analysis of single port discharges. Emphasis is placed on the geometry and dilution characteristics of the initial mixing zone as well as far field mixing processes. The problem domain of CORMIX is discharges into flowing environments such as rivers, estuaries, lakes and coastal waters. CORMIX1 includes positively and negatively buoyant discharges into stratified crossflow. It contains the limiting cases of neutrally buoyant discharges and unstratified stagnant environments.
