This project is focused on the understanding of the scale effect, normally included on the laboratory analysis of the dynamics of water storage tanks agitated by a turbulent jet. It is the final aim of this project to understand, through laboratory experiments, the flow structure within a water storage tank and to identify zones of low mixing that can produce water quality problem due to bacteriological contamination.
