Abstract

This paper aims to investigate the buoyancy effect on round jets by numerical simulation for providing more information that is not easy to be measured in a laboratory, as a result, the understanding of the marine outfall will be improved. A buoyant round jet discharged at the mid-depth in a stagnant environment using a three-dimensional Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations model. Three kinds of effluents of various densities were used for the jets. The buoyancy effect on the cross-sectional profiles of round jet was investigated. It was found that the buoyant force significantly influences the jet shape in the near field region, but not in the potential core region.
