Abstract
The superior hydrodynamics of circular tanks over rectangular tanks are well known by aquaculturists; yet rectangular tanks are still widely used because of their easier handling. As a consequence, several studies have focused on the hydrodynamics of rectangular tanks, where rotating flow cells are generated by injecting water tangentially to the tank wall with the outlet placed in the center of the cell. In the present work, we evaluate the hydrodynamics in a rectangular tank with 4 rotating fl...
