Flow Characteristics And Its Analysis Around An Impermeable Groyne
This paper express the results of an experimental study on a prismatic tilting flume using an impermeable groyne
and analysing its flow characteristics(velocity and flow depth). A symmetrical prismatic channel of cross section 0.3 x 0.6 m
was used. Physical model of an impermeable groyne with top width 0.02m, bottom width 0.26m, crest length is of 0.05m
and bottom length is of 0.075m, was used to study the flow characteristics. Here 0.015m length is extended in the bottom of
the groyne to depict a launching apron. The flow pattern in the longitudinal and cross sections at upstream (u/s) and
downstream (d/s) have been studied and finally the flow characteristics have been analysed in a non-dimensional manner.
