Numerical Models of the Vertical Turbulent Exchange in Stably Stratified Water Body: II. Results of Numerical Experiments

Abstract

On the basis of the developed models [1], numerical modeling of the problem on penetration of a turbulent layer of mixed liquid in linearly stratified medium under constant shear stress is performed. The calculation results are in satisfactory agreement with the known experimental data and show a significant effect of anisotropy of the flow on its main characteristics.
