An evaluation of movable-bed tidal inlet models by Subhash C Jain( Book )

7 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of movable-bed tidal inlet hydraulic models in predicting prototype behavior, by comparing model predictions with the observations made in the prototype, and to examine the scaling requirements for such models. Seven model studies were conducted by WES during the period 1939 to 1969. Calibrations of five of these models, as measured by bed topography changes, are evaluated by means of quantitative indicators, including correlation coefficients and root-mean-square (rms) error. The values of correlation coefficients, disregarding measurement errors in model and prototype soundings, were generally low and those of rms error high. Evaluation of data from the Galveston Harbor entrance model revealed that the shoaling rates and distribution along the navigation channel predicted by the model are not in good agreement with the prototype data. It was concluded that the model reproduction of details of bed topography was less accurate than that which might have been obtained had the proposed similitude criteria been used, and had more complete prototype data been available for calibration. Disagreement between model and prototype is believed to have been due to: scale effects introduced by nonsimilarity ofthe physical processes; insufficient prototype data for calibration and verification; oversimplification of the available prototype data for use in the model study; and experimental errors

A numerical model for flow and sediment transport in alluvial-river bends by Tatsuaki Nakato( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Closed-form mathematical models are formulated for the rate of development and strength of secondary current, and for bed topography in meandering, erodible-bed streams of arbitary plan form. The formulations utilize conservation of flux-of-moment-of momentum as the additional relation required to complete the formulation for the radial bed-shear stress. The secondary-flow-velocity calculation was uncoupled from the calculation of the radial mass-shift velocity and streamwise velocity distributions, which were obtained from the depth-integrated equations expressing conservation of mass and streamwise momentum. Numerical simulations were made for one laboratory flow and two Sacramento River flows with constant centerline curvature. Good agreement was obtained between measured and computed distributions of flow and depth-averaged streamwise velocity. (Author)

Hydraulics and mechanics of river ice jams by M. S Uzuner( Book )

3 editions published between 1967 and 1974 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analytical model is developed for evolution of embacles in rivers. The differential equations underlying the analysis are the static force equilibrium relation for the fragmented ice cover; the unsteady, nonuniform momentum relation for the liquid flow beneath the ice; and the unsteady continuity equations for the solid and liquid phases. The analysis is limited to the case of uniform, rectangular channels. It yields predictions for the streamwise distribution of the thickness of the ice cover and the depth of flow beneath it; the flow depth and cover thickness over the uniform downstream reach where the jam thickness and flow depth are constant; the flow depth at the upstream end of the jam; and the velocity of propagation of the jam front. Estimates are also obtained for the rate of growth of a jam during early stages of its evolution, just following initiation
Analysis of Sacramento River bend flows, and development of a new method for bank protection by A. Jacob Odgaard( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study includes an investigation of analytical models for the description of flow and bed charactersitics in a bend of the Sacramento River, California; and a study of a proposed new technique for bank protection. Existing models for the prediction of the steady-state transverse bed profile in channel bends are reviewed; and alternative models are developed and validated. The new models predict the transverse bed slope to-vary linearly with d/r (the ratio of depth, d, to radius curvature, r) and almost linearly with the sediment-particle Froude number. Equations for the transverse variation of depth-averaged' velocity and mean-grain size also are developed, which, together with the equations for the transverse variation of depth, can provide a guide to the depth of bed erosion and depth-averaged velocity near the outer bank of river bends. It is shown, theoretically and by a physical model, that short, vertical, submerged vanes installed at incidence to the channel axis in the outer banks of a river-bend channel significantly reduce the secondary currents and the attendant undermining and high-velocity attack of the outer bank. The effect of the vanes on the secondary flow is estimated by a simple torque calculation using the. Kutta-Joukowski theorem. A design relation for the van spacing is derived by equating the torque, about the channel centroid, produced by the flow curvature to that resulting from the lateral force exerted on the vanes. The relation is verified in an idealized, physical model of the mentioned bend of the Sacramento River, Calif
Turbulent nonbuoyant or buoyant jets discharged into flowing or quiescent fluids by Tzeng-Long Chan( Book )

5 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two closely related problems are investigated: round turbulent nonbuoyant jets in cross-streams, and inclined turbulent buoyant jets in quiescent homogeneous fluids. Experiments were conducted for the first problem at a jet Reynolds number of 200,000. Pressure distributions on the jet-exit plane, and velocity distributions in the center plane were measured for values. Data on drag forces, jet centerlines, half-widths, and centerline velocities were obtained from the experiments. An integral-type analysis was carried out for the two problems investigated. The equations are solved in Cartesian coordinates for the near-field of both problems and for the far-field of the nonbuoyant jet, and in a natural coordinate system for the curvilinear zone of the nonbuoyant jet.

Hydrothermal modelling of Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant cooling towers by Subhash C Jain( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A laboratory model study of the mechanical draft cooling towers of Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant was conducted to determine plume recirculation and cooling-tower interference quantitatively, and to evaluate the effectiveness of various modifications, including removal of a nearby spoil hillock, rearrangement of the tower cells, and increase of stack height, on the cooling-tower performance. Two sectional models with a scale of 1:150, each consisting of two towers, were tested. The dynamic scaling was based on equality of the densimetric Froude number, F(D), (F(D) = V(j)/sq. root of delta (Rho sub o) gD, where V(j) is the stack exit velocity, D is the stack diameter, g is the gravitational constant, rho sub a is the ambient fluid density and delta (Rho sub o) is the density difference between the ambient and jet effluent and the velocity ratio K(K = V(j)/V(a), where V(a) is the cross-flow velocity at the stack height. It was found that the effect of the spoil hill and of the relocation of two cells per tower on the overall recirculation ratio of the towers is not significant. An increase in stack height from 14 ft to 42 ft significantly reduced tower recirculation. (Author)
