Littoral Environment Observation Program
This paper presents a method for determining the longitudinal, transverse, and vertical dispersivities of a thick aquifer for a free convection tracer test using only measurements from...

Brownian Coagulation in the Initial Mixing Region of a Buoyant Plume
The paper discusses reactive systems that share the following common phenomenon: their reaction is either controlled by both kinetics and diffusion, or fully by diffusion. It reports on...

Computer Model Study of a Contaminated Well Field-Groundwater Pollution Source Identification and Contaminant Plume Simulation
Toxic waste contamination is currently threatening the public water-supply wells of the Town of Vestal, New York. As a practical tool to assist the remedial investigation, a two-dimensional...

Mechanics of Inclined Dense Plumes

Laminar Axisymmetric Starting Plume Measurements

Uncertainty Analysis of River Plume Models Using Fourier Amplitude Sensitivity (FAST) Procedures

Advection and Dispersion in an Experimental Groundwater Plume

Arresting a Toxic Plume
At an abandoned gravel pit in New Hampshire turned into a dump site for hazardous liquid chemical wastes (as well as drummed solid waste), engineers had to race against the clock to stem...

Thermal Plume Area Calculation
A simple formula for the surface area of a thermal plume is proposed, appropriate for application to a depth-limited surface discharge. The formula is based upon thermodynamic and kinematic...

Multiport Diffusers for Heat Disposal: A Summary
This paper reviews the fluid mechanical characteristics - as derived from theoretical and experimental studies during the past dozen years - of submerged multiport diffusers used for heat...

Outfall Diffuser Behavior in Stratified Ambient Fluid
A method for the preparation of design charts for estimating the mixing behavior from outfall diffusers in stagnant stratified ambient fluids is presented. Numerical analyses by traditional...

Plume Development Using a Lagrangian Marker Method
Currents as a function of wind were calculated by a depth integrated model of Lake Superior. Using the calculated currents, the development of large turbidity plume was numerically simulated....

Slow Second Order Reactions in Power Plant Plumes

Mixing Zone Analysis for River Plumes
Steam power plants which utilize once-through cooling, are required to meet certain mixing zone standards for thermal plumes. Once-through cooling occurs when water is withdrawn from a...

Similarity Solutions for Turbulent Jets and Plumes
Problems of the convection and diffusion of momentum and of heat (or salinity) in turbulent jets and buoyant plumes, with or without crosswind, are of importance to modern civil engineering...

Sampling to Characterize Stream Plumes
New perspectives are offered on taking samples to determine pollutant concentrations in a stream cross section. By combining plume simulation with a gradient search curve fitting procedure,...
