Where Frwu is the upstream weir Froude number and Frwd is the downstream weir Froude number.
The LID ratio of our tests varied with the Froude number. Comparison between the experimental LID and the estimates produced by other breakup theories showed that the IKEMIX model is close to the test results in that the effect of initial velocity is included appropriately.
For small Froude numbers (FR < 0.2), the plume is dominated by buoyancy and the flow is strongly vertical.
The Froude number is used to determine the form drag resistance of ships with different lengths and velocities.
[7] studied the temporal evolution of clear-water pier and abutment scour and found that the principal parameter influencing the scour process is the densimetric particle Froude number so suggested an logarithmic formula.
It was shown that the wave pattern depended on the Froude number Fn (non-dimensional parameter of speed with reference to the ship's length, Fn = U/ [square root of](gL)], where U is the ship speed, g the gravity acceleration and L the ship's length) and the hull-form configuration, contrary to the theory of linear, dispersive waves.
where [N.sup.2.sub.Frt] is the pipe Froude number, which will be explained in further detail in the section Relative Velocity Between Phases.
Estimates for the value of complex hydraulic variables differed with changes in flow velocity across our single transect; Froude number ranged from 0.16-0.23 with a mean value of 0.20, boundary Reynolds number ranged from 4,055-5,998 with a mean of 5,076, and shear stress ranged from 14.06-28.63 dynes/[cm.sup.2] with a mean of 21.1 dynes/[cm.sup.2].
The degree of stratification of the medium can be evaluated by computing the horizontal Froude number. Referring to Brethouwer et al.
To sustain observations made on the variation of riverbed material, a Shields diagram as a function of Reynolds number and as a function of Froude number was utilized.
This assumption is reasonable when the Froude number is small enough [11].
