Abstract
The thermal density current is researched in different incoming flow depth based on numerical simulation and find there will form a plumping thermal density current if the temperature of incoming flow is lower than the environmental water temperature in the reservoir; the incoming depth has little effect on the thermal density current, in particular, the depth has little effect on the average velocity, the average temperature, and the mixing along in the same section of the reservoir; there is relationship between the mixing coefficient and the Richardson number, and the larger the Richardson number is, the smaller the blending coefficient is.
