The dynamics of gravity currents propagating beneath intermediate water waves is investigated in the present study. Laboratory experiments were carried out in a wave flume, in which saltwater was released into freshwater by means of a point-release setup in the presence of a fully developed wave field. Results revealed a series of interesting...

Salt water intrusion through the New Sea Lock of IJmuiden, Netherlands requires mitigation to ensure availability of enough fresh water further inland. For this purpose, a salt screen has been proposed for selective withdrawal of salt water from the Noordzeekanaal in the vicinity of the lock complex. Formulas to assess the withdrawal rate of...

Dam reservoirs form a crucial part for human society storing water, controlling floods, providing hydropower, water for irrigation and drinking. Annually 1% of the worldwide dam reservoirs storage capacity is lost, caused by sedimentation. The inflow of sediment and reduction of flow velocity and turbulence in the reservoir pro- vides favourable...

Turbidity currents are major transport agents in reservoirs in which high concentrations of fine sediments flow in. Reservoir sedimentation due to turbidity currents is often severe in these cases. Turbidity currents are not well understood due to their complex turbulent flow structure, the interaction between the flow with the particles and the...

In opdracht van Directie Noordzee is onderzoek gedaan naar de verspreiding van het overvloeiverlies bij sleephopperzuigers. Dit onderzoek is gericht op de vraag: wanneer treedt er menging van het overvloeiverlies met de waterkolom op en wanneer gedraagt het overvloeiverlies zich a1s een dichtheidsstroom. In geval van een dichtheidsstroom komt...

In 1984 en 1985 hebben proeven aangetoond dat het mogelijk is om dichtheidsstromen op te wekken van water met een hoog sedimentgehalte. Het onder lage druk (ca. 1 bar) injecteren van water in de bodem, het zogenaamde 'jetten' verdunt de bodem tot een water-sedimentmengsel. Door het verschil in dichtheid tussen het water-sedimentmengsel en het...

Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela is an outstanding example of today's conflict of interests between protection of natural resources and economic development because of the extensive use of the area. The exchange and interaction between the fresh water of the Lake and the saline water from the Gulf of Venezuela is an important mechanism in the...

Proceedings of the 4th conference organized by IAHR (section on experimental methods and physical modeling) on scale effects. Special keynotes and invited presentations describe the contributions of Dr. Keulegan and their relation to present work in mixing processes, stratified flow and other areas of fluid mechanics. These proceedings contain...

Chandramohan, P.V. (author)
In an estuary, the confluence of fresh water of upland rivers with salt water from the sea gives rise to a complex regime of flow pattern due to the difference in densities of the two liquids of about 2.5%. Vhen the estuary is stratified, the heavier salt water which dives underneath the lighter fresh water extends as a long wedge far into the...

The aim of the study was to give an indication of the accuracy and applicability of one-dimensional salt intrusion models in estuaries in Mozambique. Attention is mainly centered on tidally averaged modeis, although some preliminary testing of a real- time model is included as weIl. Testing of the models is done with data, obtained from a field...

This report describes a mathematical model that was developed to predict salinity intrusion in estuaries as it is affected by control and abstraction of fresh water. The need for such a model, particularly for estuaries in tropical areas with large variations in fresh water flow, capable of giving satisfactory predictions of salinity movement...

A great deal of literature has been devoted to gravity currents in estuaries. However, more or less detailed theoretical models of these phenomena are scarce. This is partly due to the fact that the equations have been difficult to solve if they describe the situation with some generality. This difficulty is surmounted by the use of digital...

This paper gives a survey of the theoretical investigations in Holland on the motion of salt and fresh water in estuaries, locks, etc. The insight gained is set forth, and also questions yet unsolved are mentioned. First the long wave phenomena in the interface of two sharply separated liquids are treated, and in connection herewith, the cases...
