Abstract

An analytical study of the steady horizontal recirculation generated due to heat rejection to a water body, through a heated discharge, is carried out. The effect on the cold water intake temperature and the dependence of the flow on various governing parameters are studied. The horizontal spread of the flow is determined for various configurations and flow rates. The resulting recirculation is obtained in terms of stream lines and isotherms. The study also considers a simpler one-dimensional model. The relevance of the results obtained to practical heat rejection systems is also discussed.
