Surface Jet at Small Richardson Numbers
Spreading of a jet discharged horizontally at the surface of an initially quiescent water of larger density has been investigated by several authors (2,3,4). The density difference may be due to a higher temperature of the jet, or a larger salinity of the ambient fluid, or both. In the present paper it has been attempted to develop a theoretical solution based on some assumptions of similarity in velocity and density distributions in the case of small Richardson numbers.
