In order to clarify the mixing that occurs in a gravity current which precedes a backdraft, a two-dimensional simulation, a series of salt water experiments, and backdraft experiments were performed. A compartment in a ratio width/height/length of 1/1/2 is used in the experiments and computations. Two different openings were used in the salt water experiments and numerical computations: a fully open end wall and a h1/3 horizontal slot centred in an end wall, where h1 is the compartment height… CONTINUE READING
