Air entrainment

Culvert, screen and outfall manual, (CIRIA C786) published by CIRIA in 2019, defines air entrainment as: ‘The development of air-water flow due to interaction between turbulent water and its surroundings, typically in steep conduits or at transitions such as hydraulic jumps. This is a different process to air entrainment in a concrete mix.’
