A guide to the planning and hydraulic design of jet pump remedial sand bypassing systems
Richardson, Thomas W.; McNair, Ernest C.
Instruction ReportAbstract: 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.
