Abstract: This report is intended as an aid to engineers studying alternative solutions to a coastal sand bypassing problem. Using this report, engineers already familiar with coastal processes and centrifugal pumping systems will be able to: (A.) determine the feasibility of a jet pump remedial bypassing system at a given site, (B.) develop initial layouts for such a system, and (C.) perform the system basic hydraulic design. A set of considerations and guidelines relative to feasibility and intial layout are discussed in varying degrees of detail. Two step-by-step hydraulic design procedures are presented, one being an iterative type adaptable to computer solution, the other a graphical approach. Both procedures are keyed to a simple system with one jet pump and one booster pump. Additional considerations are given for systems using multiple jet and/or booster pumps. A companion report to be issued at a later date will describe techniques and equipment for building, operating, and monitoring a jet pump bypassing system. NOTE: This report contained 14 oversize plates that are not included with the scanned report. If you desire to see the plates, email the ERDC library at to let us know you want to see them.
