Abstract:The study presents a general analysis of two-layered stratified flows taking into account effects of sidewall friction and variation of density with horizontal distance. The analysis is applied to the study of arrested thermal wedges and arrested cold water intrusions. Laboratory data were collected and analyzed and it was determined that bed roughness has a significant effect on the interfacial friction factor for arrested thermal wedges but not for arrested cold water intrusions. Friction factors were found to vary significantly along the wedges indicating that use of average values is perhaps undesirable. Local values of friction factor were found to increase with values of a local interfacial Reynolds number.
