Abstract

This paper describes an experimental and theoretical investigation of the circulation in water-supply reservoirs. Different inlet and outlet arrangements were used in reservoirs of various shapes. Experimental results, using scale model reservoirs, are also given. The effects of model size, the reservoir's aspect ratio and the Reynolds number were investigated. Numerical predictions using the FLUENT package were compared with experimental results.
