The temperature distribution induced in an ambient body of water by a surface discharge of heated condenser cooling water must be determined for evaluation of thermal effects upon the natural environment, for prevention of recirculation of the heated discharge into the cooling water intake, for improved design of laboratory scale models and for insuring that discharge configurations meet legal temperature regulations. This report presents a review of the theoretical background for a three-dimensional temperature prediction model, a detailed discussion of the computer program and a case study illustrating the procedure for optimizing the design of a surface discharge channel. Flow chart, program listing and a sample of the input and output data are given in the appendices.
