A linear, inviscid theory, termed the coupled basins theory, has been developed to analyze the response to periodic incident waves of an arbitrary shape harbor containing several interconnected basins. The region of consideration is divided into...

This report summarizes the results of a five-year laboratory research project on various flow phenomena of importance to transport and dispersion of pollutants in hydrologic and coastal environments. The results are useful in two general ways:...

A mathematical model is developed resulting in a computer program for the prediction of the behavior of plumes from multiple cooling towers with multiple cells. A general integral method based on the conservation of mass, momentum, energy (heat),...

Previous theories for particle coagulation are not readily applicable to the continuous particle size distributions encountered in natural waters. By extending concepts developed in the analysis of aerosol dynamics, predictions of continuous...

Various hydraulic model tests were performed in connection with the design and performance of the offshore thermal outfalls for the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (jointly owned by the Southern California Edison Company and the San Diego...

There were four major objectives to this investigation: 1) the determination of the degree of stability of the island face when constructed of armor units of various weights; 2) the run-up for a two-dimensional wave system impinging on the island...

This study investigates lateral mixing of tracer fluids in turbulent open-channel flows when the tracer and ambient fluids have different densities. Longitudinal dispersion in flows with longitudinal density gradients is investigated also....

This study is an investigation of the mixing of density-stratified impoundments by means of buoyant jets created by a pumping system. The deterioration of water quality which often occurs in density-stratified lakes and reservoirs may be...

The transverse spreading of a plume generated by a point source in a uniform open-channel flow is investigated. A neutrally-buoyant tracer was injected continuously at ambient velocity through a small round source at a point within the flow....

A laboratory investigation was conducted to determine the effects of water temperature on sediment discharge close to the bed (bed-load discharge), and on bed roughness and geometry in alluvial, open-channel flows. Three types of experiments...

This report presents and interpretation of results obtained during the hydraulic model study previously documented in "Hydraulic Modeling of Thermal Outfall Diffusers for the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant" which described the hydraulic laboratory...

The entrainment and mixing processes in a two-dimensional vertical turbulent buoyant (heated) jet in its transition state from a pure jet to a pure plume have been studied. The ambient fluid is of uniform density and non-flowing except for the...

An empirical relationship is presented for the incipient motion of bottom material under solitary waves. Two special cases of bottom material are considered: particles of arbitrary shape, and isolated sphere resting on top of a bed of tightly...

Coagulation, in the physical context, is looked upon here first from the fundamental perspective of collision and coalescence of individual particles. A Monte Carlo technique is used to investigate the particle size distribution in a suspension of...

Some aspects of turbulence in sediment-laden open-channel flows are examined. A conceptual model based on similarity hypotheses rather than the traditional mixing-length closures is proposed. It is argued that, over a wide range of laboratory...

Although it is known that manganese oxides are solubilized by reduction in anoxic waters, the chemical processes are poorly understood. A study of the reduction and dissolution of manganese oxide suspensions by twenty-seven organic substrates that...

Chrysotile asbestos fibers enter California waters from physical weathering of magnesium-silicate, serpentine rocks in mountains of the northern and central portions of the state. Chrysotile particles, initially positively charged below pH 8.9...

The work was to be carried out as part of WMO's participation in the United Nations Development Project (UNDP) on Hydrology and Climatology of the Brazilian Amazon River Basin under the direction of Eduardo Basso, Project Manager. This project is...

The use of optical methods such as Laser Doppler Velocimetry (LDV) and laser induced fluorescence techniques (LIF) in experimental fluid mechanics is becoming very common. The greatest advantage of such methods is that measurements are made...

This widely referenced, but seldom seen report is of both historic and engineering interest. While much of the work presented has since been eclipsed by more recent work, the velocity equation for open channels (Eq. 37) is still in use. It is...
