Buoyancy driven flow between two finite zones containing fluid of slightly different density is investigated. Two zones separated by (i) a single common doorway, and, (ii) top and bottom vents. In the former case, a two-layer exchange flow develops once the barrier is removed. In the zone that...
Bottom propagating gravity currents resulting from full- and partial-depth lock-release experiments are investigated as they propagate up a rising slope in uniform and two-layer stratified ambients. In the case of uniform ambients, the gravity current front decelerates in a nearly uniform...
An analytical and experimental study of boundary gravity currents propagating through a two-layer stratified ambient of finite vertical extent is presented. The theoretical discussion considers slumping, supercritical gravity currents, i.e. those that generate an interfacial disturbance whose...
