Mechanism of Air Entrainment in Spillway Aerators
The mechanism of air entrainment in the Nappe over spillway aerators was investigated. Turbulence was identified as the main agent for aeration. It was found that Nappe underpressure influences...

Removal of Tidal Fluctuations from Pumping Test Data
A simple technique for removing tidal fluctuations from drawdown data was examined. This technique relied simply upon transforming measured surface water level data to fit the pretest...

A Model of Mixing in a Stratified Tidal Flow
We will describe a simple model of vertical mixing in a stratified tidal flow that might be observed in shallow estuary like San Francisco Bay. The model flow is driven by a specified...

A Model for Vertical Transport at a Sheared Density Interface
A physically based model for vertical mixing and transport at a sheared density interface is presented, based on high-resolution measurements from laboratory experiments. It is found that...

Mixing Characteristics of a Transitional Stratified Two-Layer Flow
Small scale structures in a stably stratified two-layer flow are investigated. The flow configuration has the initial velocity interface displaced with respect to the density interface....

An Experimental Study of Bivalve Siphonal Jets in a Turbulent Boundary Layer Crossflow
We conducted experiments in a laboratory flume to study the interaction of bivalve siphonal jets with the turbulent boundary layer which forms in the benthic region of shallow estuaries....

Fluid Mechanics Aspects of Ocean Outfalls
Prediction of the environmental effects of ocean outfalls requires understanding of some complex fluid mechanical phenomena. These include the dynamics of merging plumes in flowing, density-stratified...

Analysis of Pulsing Phenomenon in Viscous Debris Flow
Pulsing motion is the main pattern of viscous debris flow. Results of study on hyperconcentrated flow are briefly illustrated in this paper. By referring study results of hyperconcentrated...

Turbulent Velocity Flutuations in Natural Rivers
The longitudinal and transverse components of flow velocity, as well as the normal and tangential stresses, must be expected to fluctuate with time and space when flow at a high Reynolds...

Chatuge Hydroproject Aerating Infuser Physical Model Study
The Tennessee Valley Authority is investigating the feasibility of a dual purpose reregulation and aeration weir to increase the dissolved oxygen in water releases and to provide continuous...

Parameterization of Turbulence for Three-Dimensional Circulation Modeling
Estuarine circulation are driven by the actions of tide, wind, and density gradients associated with saline ocean water and fresh riverine water, and are also influenced by the complex...

Mixing Character and Meandering Mechanism of a Plane Jet Bounded in a Shallow Water Layer
A plane jet in a shallow water layer is characterized by the jet width b1/2 much larger than the water depth h at large downstream distances x/h...

A Diffusion Hydrodynamic Model of a Shallow Estuary: Verification
Many of the hydrodynamic models used for estuary tidal flows and storm surges are based on two two-dimensional hydrodynamic equations which are obtained form the full three-dimensional...
