Abstract or Summary
  • This study discusses important aspects of the ocean which should be considered in the design of a sewage outfall system; conditions are restricted to those of the Oregon coastal area. They include predominant currents, upwelling tendencies and ocean bottom characteristics. Major emphasis is placed upon investigation of diffusion characteristics of a horizontal fluid jet with particular interest in the cone-of-diffusion, the cone formed by mixing of the jet fluid with the surrounding fluid. The angle of expansion of the fluid mixture is generally referred to as the angle of the cone-of-diffusion. Past studies of the angle are briefly summarized while a rather extensive investigation is made of factors which affect the vertical position of the cone-of-diffusion axis. Graphs are presented which show the effect of initial jet density and velocity, and surrounding fluid density and velocity upon the position of the cone-of-diffusion axis. Curves of the corresponding horizontal and vertical positions of the axis are presented. A thorough discussion of equations used to obtain the curves is also included. Values of densities and velocities are limited to those which would apply to an ocean outfall system used for disposal of domestic sewage and kraft-mill effluent.
