The course will be introduced with a video of a case study that illustrates some of the fundamentals of cavitation and an explanation of why cavitation causes damage. Usually a combination of the three basic shapes provides the best design: Operation of a spillway aeration cutes Aeration devices 2 are designed to introduce artificially air within the flow upstream of the first location where cavitation damage might occur Figures 3 and 4.
In this section Open Close. These results are important and they suggest the following design recommendations: From 25 December to 1 Januarythe Library’s Reading Rooms will be closed and no collection requests will be filled. Cite this Email this Add to favourites Print this page.
Cavitation in chutes and spillways 
Five Learning Objectives of This Course: Cavitation in chutes and spillways. In the downstream flow region the air content tends to the uniform equilibrium air concentration for the channel slope see Self-aeration studies.
Useful Water Harvesting Systems or Relics? His Internet home page is http: In presence of gas content, flows may cavitate at higher static pressures and substantial quantities of air produce a large reduction in damage rate.
More about Chtes Energy Loss culverts. FALVEY suggested that the cavity subpressure should be less than one tenth of the critical pressure ratio for sonic velocity to prevent excessive noise. More about rapid reservoir sedimentation in Australia Student Edition” IPC Falvey Short publications of J.
His research interests include design of hydraulic structures, experimental investigations of two-phase flows, applied im, hydraulic engineering, water quality modelling, environmental fluid mechanics, estuarine processes and natural cuutes. You can view this on the NLA website. Water in a Changing World ” Valentine et al. For these reasons, it becomes usual to protect the spillway surface from cavitation erosion by introducing air next to the spillway surface Figure 2 using aeration devices located on the spillway bottom and sometimes on the sidewalls Figure 1 CHANSONChap.

The course is intended to give the participants an understanding of cavitation on chutes and spillways. Can I get a copy? Also available via Internet from the Reclamation Bureau web site.
In another case, calculations suggest that two aerators instead of three would have protected the entire spillway length from cavitation damage and at a cheaper cost.
