Cavitation in chutes and spillways [1990]

sppillways It involves the entire sequence of events: His publication record includes over international refereed papers and his work was cited over 4, times WoS to 16, times Google Scholar since Back to Prof Chanson’s Home Page. Engineering monographs ; no. 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.

Cavitation and air entrainment Cavitation is defined as the explosive growth of vapour bubbles. The practice to design a large number of air inlets is completely empirical and un-economical.

National Library of Australia. The optimum location of the first aerator and the required aerator spacing depend essentially upon the free-surface aeration potential. The participants will be guided to an Excel Spreadsheet program that reproduces all the Fortran programs given in EM From 25 December to 1 Januarythe Library’s Reading Rooms will be closed and cavitatikn collection requests will be filled.

B On small-slope chutes, the first aerator must be located immediately upstream of the potential cavitation inception location in absence cavitahion aerators.

A For steep spillways, the first aeration device must be located near the upstream end of the channel to ‘trigger’ the free-surface aeration process and to use self-aeration in the spillwajs flow region to maximise air entrainment. A clear understanding of the difference between cavitation and cavitation damage.
