CE 54700 - Transport Processes In Surface Waters

Credit Hours: 3.00. Four main topics are covered: (1) density-stratified two-layer systems in lakes and channels, with applications to mixed-layer growth, oil-spill containment, salinity intrusions, (2) advection-diffusion modeling in channels, including analytical solutions to steady and unsteady, one- and two-dimensional problems, (3) mechanisms of diffusional transport, including turbulence in channels and longitudinal shear dispersion, and (4) near-field analysis of discharges, including similarity analyses of jets and plumes. Typically offered Spring.Credits: 3.00
