Factors which affect recirculation of water after it has been used as coolant in steam plant and returned to river from which it was drawn; three zones of flow considered -- upstream from intake, between inlet and outlet, and downstream from outlet -- are not influenced by one another; in three-dimensional case, recirculation is governed by depths immediately upstream and downstream from side intake.
