Study of air entrainment using plunging water jets by Eamon Joseph McKeogh Download PDF EPUB FB2

The phenomenon of air entrainment by water jet plunging on the free surface of a water pool is reported in the paper. An effort has been made to understand the physics of the phenomenon through.

One type of air-water shear flows is the developing flow region of a plunging jet. The mechanisms of air entrainment by plunging liquid jets are discussed in the light of new experimental evidence.

Then the air bubble diffusion is analyzed analytically in the near-flow field of both circular and two-dimensional plunging by: Study of Air Entrainment by a Horizontal Plunging Liquid Jet experimental data for water jets in air over a wide range of liquid velocities (from around 1 to 10 m/s) for the total rate of air.

Air entrainment: Air entrainment is an effective way of protecting concrete from freezing and thawing is achieved by adding a surface active agent in very small dosages to the concrete mixture. This action creates a large number of small, closely spaced air bubbles in the hardened concrete.

Air entrainment occurs when two or more flowing fluids plunge into each other, or when some sort of turbulence is introduced in a water body.

In this study, experiments were conducted to explore some properties of bubble plumes of two inclined circular plunging water jets on a water surface in a cubic tank utilizing particle image velocimetry Author: M.

Baawain, M. Gamal El-Din, D. Smith. Void fractions and bubble count rates were measured in the developing shear layer of a large-size plunging jet d 1 = 25 mm.

The data compared well with a solution of an advective diffusion equation and showed an increased air entrainment rate with increasing free-jet length for x 1 / d 1 ⩽ Cited by: At a plunging jet, air entrainment takes place when the jet impact velocity V 1 exceeds a critical threshold, called onset or inception velocity.

For rough turbulent jet flows, the inception velocity V e is about 1 m/s for a vertical jet discharging into fresh water and sea water (paragraph ). Cummings and H. Chanson, “An experimental study of individual air bubble entrainment at a planar plunging jet,” Chem.

A recent review of studies of air entrainment created by plunging jets from a nozzle and a breaking wave has shown “qualitatively different types of impact”. We utilize a steady plunging jet to produce bubble clouds because we are interested in the underwater bubble population rather than the impact of the jet on the water or the mechanism Cited by: 5.

At the bottom of the downcomer, the bubbles are separated from the flow in a separator vessel. The objective of this thesis is to develop the design methodology for the air entrainment and air-water separation components on either end of the downcomer process.Here, ω f is the forcing frequency, f is the forcing amplitude.
