Mote Ohveira

Abstract


The main object of this work is to study the variations of the flushing ability of tidal inlets with the degree of shoaling, assuming the natural situations in the lagoon are uniform. It was assumed thar natural f! ~r tg ar ity is p! oportie 1 o i *?ed-ioad capacity of ->-idai currents end ra; *ct s capacity c^ be cii^racx.«> <?c\ bo^'i r-y the hydraul c power consumed in t ne connecting change' and bv r^ 3rd or 6th power of the mean velocity Influence ox th** siope of tb* ^ j^ b~*r! & ana of the inner heao losses was also analysed.
