A general model is described for drag wakes in a linearly stratified fluid, based on the selfpreservation of the flow. It is assumed that the buoyancy-controlled self-similar wake expands in the horizontal direction due to turbulent diffusion and in the vertical direction due to viscous diffusion. The mean characteristics of the wake (height, width and velocity defect) are analytically derived and show good agreement with existing data from experimental and numerical results. Moreover, the… CONTINUE READING
