Artificial Stream Research


Results: 1 pump, variable channel, 4-5 cm zone.

Upstream - Channel width 4.5 cm

With one pump and a channel width of 4.5 cm, mean current velocity 4-5 cm above the bottom was 0.207 ± 0.004 m/s. Mean vertical displacement velocity was 0.017 ± 0.003 m/s.


Results: 1 pump, variable channel, 4-5 cm zone.

Midstream - Channel width 3.8 cm

With one pump and a channel width of 3.8 cm, mean current velocity 4-5 cm above the bottom was 0.243 ± 0.004 m/s. Mean vertical displacement velocity was 0.012 ± 0.002 m/s.


Results: 1 pump, variable channel, 4-5 cm zone.

Downstream - Channel width 3.0 cm

With one pump and a channel width of 3.0 cm, mean current velocity 4-5 cm above the bottom was 0.285 ± 0.004 m/s. Mean vertical displacement velocity was 0.013 ± 0.002 m/s.
