Abstract : This program is intended for application to design and planning problems involving consideration of multi-level intake structures. The program will simulate the vertical distribution of water temperature within a reservoir and estimate the mean monthly release temperature through each level of intake. The results of the program are useful in determining the required number of intake levels and their vertical location. An alternative use of the program involves studying project and preproject conditions for evaluation of the thermal analysis portion of the project's environmental impact. The program simulates the vertical distribution of water temperature within a reservoir on a monthly basis from data on initial conditions and on inflow, outflow, evaporation, precipitation, radiation, and average air temperature. Outflow requirements can be specified as any combination of releases through specific outlets and in terms of maximum and minimum allowable outflow temperatures.
