Intro to Cavitation in Chutes and Spillways. Air bubbles are redistributed downstream of an aeration device as in self-aerated flows and there is a complete analogy between the flow downstream cjutes an aerator and self-aerated flows.

The course is intended to give the participants an understanding of cavitation on chutes and spillways. In another case, calculations suggest that two aerators instead of three would have protected the entire spillway length from qnd damage and at a cheaper cost. Five Learning Objectives of This Course: In one instance i.

More about engineering failures Catalogue Persistent Identifier https: 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 spillwzys sidewalls Figure 1 CHANSONChap.

Following the video, a Power Point presentation will discuss the beneficial effects of aeration on preventing damage due to cavitation. The main flow regions above a bottom aeration device are: The participants will be guided to an Excel Spreadsheet program that reproduces all the Fortran programs given in EM cavitafion He has been an active consultant for both governmental agencies and private organisations.

The basic shapes of aerators are a chktes, an offset and a groove. FALVEY suggested that the cavity subpressure should be less than one tenth of the critical pressure ratio for sonic velocity to prevent excessive noise. Discussion The quantity of air supplied by the air ducts is not always an important design parameter in term of aerator efficiency.

Engineering monographs ; no.

The practice to design a large number of air inlets is completely empirical and un-economical. Can I get a copy?
