Crossflow vs. Counterflow Air Stripping Costs
Crossflow towers offer a potential economic advantage over counterflow towers due to savings in fan power costs as well as material costs. These savings increase as contaminant volatility...

Side Effect of the Cross-Flow Turbine: Improved Water Quality
The working principle of the Original Cross-Flow Turbine with draft tube demands air induced into the turbine housing to operate at high efficiency. Reoxygenation of water will occur,...

Surface Plumes in Shallow Crossflow

Merging Buoyant Jets in a Stratified Crossflow

Sinking Jet Flow Into a Shallow Cross Current

An Integral Model of the Buoyant Surface Jet and Plume in a Cross Current and Wind

The Use of Interior Guide Tube in Cross Flow Turbines
The Cross Flow Turbine has the distinct advantage of lower initial and operating costs over other small scale turbines, but it is believed to lack somewhat in efficiency. In this study...

Design and Efficiency Testing of a Cross-Flow Turbine
An inexpensive American-made cross-flow turbine was designed, manufactured, and installed at a remote run-of-river site in Northern California. The 400 kW unit includes an innovative automatic...

Experimental Investigation of the Cross Flow Turbine
A laboratory model of the Cross Flow Turbine was investigated in the Hydraulics laboratory of Colorado State University. Because of the successful use of this turbine in the developing...

Processes of Meander Bend Migration
The flow pattern in a meander bend is described in terms of the primary flow, secondary flow, and cross-stream flow. Secondary flow which is normal to the primary flow contributes to lateral...

Prediction of the Trajectory of a Turbulent Jet Injected in a Cross Flowing Stream

Temperature Loading and Stream Turbulence Effects on a Cylinder in Crossflow

A Review of the Cross-Flow Turbine
The historical development of the cross-flow turbine is briefly presented together with a summary of the well-documented one-dimensional theory. Two-dimensional aspects of runner design...

Open Channel Flowrate Measurement Using Multipath Acoustic Flowmeters
Recent acoustic flowmeter developments have improved the applicability and accuracy of the multipath acoustic measurement technique. Accuracy, hardware cost and calibration cost can be...

Experimental Study of the Cross-Flow-Turbine
The performance of the Cross-Flow or Banki Turbine (C-F-T) was studied experimentally by varying the number of blades, the runner diameter, and the nozzle entry arc under flow/head variations....

LDV Measurements in Two-Dimensional Bent-Over Jets

Performance of Modified Chlorine Contact Chamber
A field study on the effectiveness of perforated baffles in an existing cross-baffled serpentine flow chlorine contact chamber is reported. The object of the method studied was to increase...

Burial Design Criteria for Tidal Flow Crossings
Design criteria for burial depths (for submarine pipelines, cables, diffusors, etc.) across tidal rivers, estuaries and inlets are examined. For the case of shallow, alluvial tidal rivers...

Vortex Dynamics and Bifurcation of Buoyant Jets in Crossflow
A model is developed which predicts the integral behavior of buoyant or nonbuoyant jets in crossflow with the superimposed effect of the counterrotating internal vortex structure which...

Erosion by Circular Wall Jets in Cross Flow
This paper presents the results of an exploratory study which was conducted to understand the erosion process caused by circular wall jets of air and water issuing normally to a free-stream...
