Abstract: A literature review was made in order to recommend a mathematical model to predict jet entrainment in pumped-storage reservoirs. It was found that because of the many different types of inflow situations possible, no one mathematical model would be adequate in all cases. It is recommended that each flow situation be classified and entrainment be predicted for each situation by means of techniques presented in the report. The flows are classified according to the source geometry, source buoyancy, ambient stratification, and degree of submergence. A primary and secondary classification scheme resulted in 16 possible flow types. Each situation is reviewed separately and a method for predicting entrainment presented. To use the results, judgment must first be used to classify the flow under consideration and the appropriate technique for that class of flows used. If some of the flows discussed are prevalent or of particular interest, they could be investigated in more depth and mathematical models of them developed.
