Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: The hydrodynamical relations for the fresh water above and the arrested saline wedge below the interface are developed with a view toward evaluating the average interfacial stress and the average bottom stress along the entire length of the wedge. The relations are also verified by applying the principle of momentum separately to the fresh water and next to the saline wedge. Stresses are evaluated for arrested wedges observed in a laboratory channel, the densimetric Froude number falling close to 0.40. It is found that the interfacial stresses are of viscous origin and are not modified in the cases when unilateral mixing is present.
