Entrainment by penetrative convection at low Péclet number

Richard Andrew Denton
A theoretical one-dimensional model of interfacial entrainment has been developed which models the temporal behaviour of an initially quiescent, stable temperature stratification heated from below. The specific two-layered stratification, analysed in the thesis, is an inverted model of penetrative convection in the surface layer of a thermal power station cooling pond. At the interface between the uniformly mixed turbulent convection layer and the essentially non­ turbulent diffusion region, temperature and heat flux are taken to...
