Information on some of the physical processes producing temperature and velocity distribution when heated water is discharged from a channel into a wide and deep impoundment was obtained in several laboratory experiments. Both the outlet channel and the receiving tank had rectangular cross sections, but the tank was more than thirty times wider and deeper than the channel. Measurements of local velocities were made with a tethered buoyant sphere. Temperatures were also measured and some surface spreading patterns were recorded photographically. Investigated densimetric Froude numbers and Reynolds numbers at the outlet ranged from 0.6 to 7.2 and from 1500 to 9600, respectively. (Author)
