Abstract

In establishing the salinity gradient in a solar pond by fresh water injection into salt brine, it is important that the intended profile be established with mixing occurring at and above the injection diffuser level. In this study, the governing parameter used to describe the injection was the injection Froude number. Based on data taken during gradient establishment at the El Paso Solar Pond, and through additional experimentation, a critical Froude number near 18 was determined.
