Laboratory studies were conducted with a shallow-submerged thermal discharge model in a flowing ambient stream. Plume behavior, characterized by excess temperature, trajectory, and width, was observed to determine the qualitative effects of the discharge angle, Froude number, relative stream velocity, and turbulence in the ambient water. Increasing the angle of discharge in a vertical plane parallel to the direction of stream flow caused increased dilution and lower temperatures along the trajectory. Jets of higher Froude number diluted less than those of lower Froude number for the same discharge angle and relative stream velocity. With no turbulence in the ambient stream, dilution was increased by a reduction in the ambient stream velocity. However, in a turbulent stream, dilution was decreased by a reduction in the ambient velocity. (Author)
