The primary objective has been to determine the feasibility of using physical models to describe the dispersion of continuously injected effluents in open channels. The approach to the problem has been along two lines: (1) examining scale-up relationships applicable to this model to determine factors limiting a realistic scale-up, and (2) constructing a computerized description of simple open channels to test the importance of the limiting factors and to aid in planning future experimental work. This computer model should be useful in designing models to study dispersion in open channels.
