IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Experiments on plane negatively buoyant jets

ABSTRACT
Dense effluents, such as desalination brines, are commonly discharged inclined upwards and form negatively buoyant
jets (NBJ). In this paper, we report experiments on plane NBJ performed in a laboratory tank. The jets were discharged
from a slot 20 cm long and 2 mm wide, placed at angles to the horizontal 0 = 0o and 45o. The densimetric Froude
number was in the range F0= 15 ~ 38 and the Reynolds Re0 = 1200 ~ 3200. The trajectory was measured by analysis of
video recordings, whereas axial concentrations were determined by extracting small volumes of liquid, using a thin
needle adapted on a flexible pipe of small diameter. The results are presented in dimensionless form and compared with
existing data in the literature for 0 = 0o, whereas for 0 = 45o useful observations are made for the normalized terminal
height of rise and the normalized distance to the return point compared to round NBJ. For both discharge angles, the
results are found to agree reasonably well with model predictions.
