HYDRAULICS OF RIVER ICE

THE GENERAL TWO-PHASE FLOW OF BUOYANT SOLID PARTICLES TRANSPORTED BY A FREE SURFACE FLOW IS DESCRIBED. THE MODE OF FLOWING WATER OF LIGHT SOLIDS WITH LESSER DENSITY THAN WATER IS EXAMINED AND COMPARED TO THE MORE FAMILIAR TRANSPORT OF HEAVY SOLIDS WITH GREATER DENSITY. THE VALIDITY OF THE THEORETICAL MODEL IN DEALING WITH NATURAL BUOYANT SOLIDS IN RIVERS IS DISCUSSED IN PARTICULAR WHEN APPLIED TO THE TRANSPORT OF ICE. A MODEL INVESTIGATION OF THE BURFELL DIVERSION DAM ON THE RIVER THJORSA IN ICELAND, WHICH IS FAMOUS FOR ITS ICE PRODUCTION, IS DESCRIBED. THE MODEL WAS BUILT AT THE RIVER AND HARBOUR RESEARCH LABORATORY AT THE TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF NORWAY, TRONDHEIM. PASSIVE, NATURAL SLUSH WAS SIMULATED BY POLYETHYLENE SHAVINGS FOR THIS MOST COMMON TYPE OF ICE PASSING THE DAM SITE. THE MODEL GAVE MANY VALUABLE HINTS ON THE DESIGN. /AUTHOR/
