    Abstract : A chute spillway is a typical component of large dams for discharging floods. Because of the high water head, the flow velocity in the chute is often in excess of 20 m/s. Consequently, the structure is usually prone to cavitation damages. Flow aeration is evidenced to efficiently eliminate or to mitigate the damages. READ MORE

  2. 2. CFD MODELLING OF TWO-PHASE FLOWS AT SPILLWAY AERATORS

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Penghua Teng; James Yang; Anders Wörman; Staffan Lundström; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; spillway; cavitation; aerator; air entrainment; air–water flow; VOF model; Two-Fluid model; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Due to the high-speed flow in a chute spillway, cavitation damages often occur. This undesired phenomenon threatens the safety of the structure. For the purpose of eliminating the damages, an aerator is often installed in the spillway. To understand its characteristics, physical model tests are a popular method. READ MORE
