The present study analyses how a uniform cross-stream affects the behavior of circular, turbulent negatively buoyant jets. The average concentration and velocity fields were investigated along the channel longitudinal central plane and across the jet in two different vertical sections, to understand the jet diffusion and penetration within the ambient fluid. This study is particularly concerned with those aspects of brine discharge likely to be of interest to the designer, i.e., the terminal height of rise of the jet and the position of the impact point, when it takes place. The comparison of the qualitative results on the evolution of the dense jet with previous studies was carried out, showing a good agreement.

Abstract

The present study analyses how a uniform cross-stream affects the behavior of circular, turbulent negatively buoyant jets. The average concentration and velocity fields were investigated along the channel longitudinal central plane and across the jet in two different vertical sections, to understand the jet diffusion and penetration within the ambient fluid. This study is particularly concerned with those aspects of brine discharge likely to be of interest to the designer, i.e., the terminal height of rise of the jet and the position of the impact point, when it takes place. The comparison of the qualitative results on the evolution of the dense jet with previous studies was carried out, showing a good agreement.
