The flow structure in the far field of line-source bubble plumes in shallow water is investigated. Recirculating cells form at both sides of the plume. Cell lengths, as given by other investigators, vary between 2.5 and 7 times the water depth. The variations are caused in part by different definitions of cell length and by the different geometries of the experimental setups. In the present study the influence of the cross-sectional geometry of the channel on the cell structure is investigated… CONTINUE READING
