U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation, – Cavitation – pages. of cavitation and the design tools necessary to eliminate or reduce the damaging effects of cavitation in chutes and spillways. The monograph discusses basic. The course is intended to give the participants an understanding of cavitation on chutes and spillways. The course will be introduced with a video of a case study.

The required surface tolerance to prevent damage with and without caivtation. More about timber crib weirs FALVEY suggested that the cavity subpressure should be less than one tenth of the critical pressure ratio for sonic velocity to prevent excessive noise. How do I find a book?

Cavitation in chutes and spillways [1990]

More pictures of self-aeration are here Discussion The quantity of air supplied by the air ducts chuutes not always an important design parameter in term of aerator efficiency. New search User lists Site feedback Ask a librarian Help. Usually a combination of the three basic shapes provides the best design: You must be logged in to Tag Records.


In the cavity formed below the nappe, a local cbutes is produced by which air is sucked into the flow e.

Prevention of Cavitation on Chutes and Spillways

All the spillway length downstream of the first aerator is protected from cavitation damage and no additional aerator is required as long as the channel slope is larger than 20 degrees.

Members of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Maori communities are advised that this catalogue contains names and images sipllways deceased people.

Sillways and air entrainment Cavitation is defined as the explosive growth of vapour bubbles. The availability of tools to study cavitation on chutes and spillways. Can I get a copy?

Can I view this online? Engineering monographs ; no. More about Minimum Energy Loss weirs CHANSON a,b presented detailed measurements of free-surface aeration along a spillway aerator model and in the downstream flow.

The basic shapes of aerators are a ramp, an offset and a groove.

Design of Spillway Aeration Devices to prevent cavitation damage on high-head chutes

Cavitaion bubbles are redistributed downstream of an aeration device as in self-aerated flows and there is a complete analogy between the flow downstream of an aerator and self-aerated flows.

Prevention of Cavitation on Chutes and Spillways

In fact the total quantity of air entrained above an aerator is related to the interfacial aeration at both upper and lower nappes, rather the air supply. The waters taking off from the deflector behave as spi,lways free jet with a large amount of interfacial aeration.

Practical considerations The designers of aeration devices must: From 25 December to 1 Januarythe Library’s Reading Rooms will be closed and no collection requests will be filled. Cavity collapses generate extremely high pressures in their immediate vicinity.
