    139 Experiment 1: fixstr1_2609a,b.  Filenames: fixstr1_2609a, fixstr1_2609b. Location: Position 1 (75% down straight section, 58 cm upstream from the end of the straight section). Input rate 5.9 l/s. Density excess 19 kg/m3. Laser was not used in the experiments today. Running basal ADV with ADV #1 located 7.2 cm, ADV #2 located at 10 cm and ADV #3 located at 12 cm above channel bed.

    141141fixstr1_2609a: The main goal was to investigate if the concentration of the gravity current, inlet box and tank D were equal (19 kg/m3). The traverse sent one TTL signal to the ADV and didn’t send a return signal so only one measurement at one point was made by the ADVs (all ADVs collected data simultaneously). On the middle ADV (!#2) wrapping occurred which indicates that velocity needs to be increased to 0.6 m/s. UVP files showed a fair amount of noise in the data which requires further investigation. We waited about 7:20 minutes for the flow rate to reach a constant value. One person took 6 samples (every 3 minutes, starting at t = 0) from the mixing tank on the third floor which contained the salt water mixture coming from tank D. A second person took 6 samples (every 3 minutes, starting at t = 0) from the inlet box at the upstream end of the channel. A third person took 3 sets of 12 siphon samples every 5 minutes (starting at t = 0, duration = 1 min).
