MODELING OF NEAR-FIELD DILUTION OF HEATED DISCHARGES ON TEKIRDAĞ COASTS

Asu İNAN [1] , Kağan CEBE [2]


The main cause of heated water discharges is the use of seawater as a coolant by power plants and industrial manufacturers. Uncontrolled discharges into the ambient sea water having excess heat, have a negative effect on the ecosystems. In this study, the near field dilution of heated sea water discharges is modeled and the behaviors of pollutant clouds are analyzed using CORMIX (CORMIX2). The effects of different parameters such as total effluent discharge, diffuser length, port details, current on the near field dilution of heated discharges are investigated with different scenarios by numerical models CORMIX2, which is the submodule of CORMIX for submerged multiport diffusers. In spite of a hypothetical study, a real coastal region was selected to obtain and discuss realistic conditions. Since Tekirdağ coasts are surrounded by industrial manufacturers and also agricultural areas, they are under pressure of the coastal pollution. Therefore Tekirdağ coastal region is selected and CORMIX2 is applied to determine the effects of discharge parameters on near field dilution.
