SURFACE OSCILLATIONS IN A WATER TANK CAUSED BY A SUBMERGED JET

Juan B. Font, Omar Azpurua, Flora Aranguren

Abstract


In this paper are studied the surface oscillations that form m a water tank when a jet emerges fron the botton The experimental systen consisted of a circular water tank with the water intake at the bottom close to its cj.rcunference Surtace osci_ nations were recorded for different situations lhe experirental results are presented in both dimensional and dirensionless ploltmgs where the oscillations atrplitud is related with water depth and jet diameter and velocity The dimensionless graphs show that the oscillation amplification is, within the variables ranges studied, mostly independent of tank diameter.
