PNEUMATIC BARRIERS AGAINST THE SPREADING OF OIL ON WATER
A theoretical and an experimental analysis are presented on the questions of the surface velocity generated by a bubble barrier, the spreading velocity of oil on stagnant water, the determination of the air flow required to stop the spreading of an oil layer on stagnant water, the influence of wind on the thickness of the oil layer, and the determination of the air flow required to stop the spreading of an oil layer which is influenced by wind shear forces and waves. From this approach, semi-empirical relations are set up to describe these processes.
