Information on some of the processes producing temperature and velocity distribution when heated water is discharged from a channel into a deep impoundment was obtained in laboratory experiments using a 40 ft long, 0.5 ft wide, 1.2 ft deep glass-walled flume. Dimensionless parameters and control mechanisms which produce various forms of stratification near the outlet were investigated specifically. Velocity and temperature distributions were measured in vertical cross sections at various distances from the outlet. Formation of stable stratification was observed using dye. (Author)
