Wave forces and moments on an intake well. R. Sundaravadivelu, V. Sundar and T.S. Rao. Ocean Engng., April 1999, 26(4), 363--380. (Publ'd 23 September 1998).
Consideration is given to a sea water magnesia project proposed at Visakahpatnam for extraction of magnesia of 50 000 tons per annum from the sea water. The proposed plant requires a daily supply of some one hundred million litres of sea water. A sea water intake well of size 20 m diameter and 15.5 m height in a water depth of 9.8 m is proposed to meet this demand. Details are given of the experimental setup and procedure together with numerous graphical illustrations. 10 refs.
