Turbulent fountains in a confined stratified environment

Bloomfield, L; Kerr, Ross


An experimental and theoretical investigation of the flow and density distribution arising from the upward turbulent injection of a dense fluid into a stratified environment of finite extent is presented. Initially, the rising fluid reaches a maximum height before the flow reverses direction and intrudes either along the base of the tank or at an intermediate height in the environment. As more dense fluid is added through either a point or line source, both the fountain and the environment...[Show more]
