The coor-. During the last three decades, the introduction of new construction materials (e.g. RCC (Roller Compacted Concrete), strengthened gabions) has increased the interest for stepped channels and spillways. However stepped chute hydraulics is not simple, because of different flow regimes and importantly because of very-strong interactions between entrained air and turbulence.

Presentation On chute spillways and bottom outlets, cavitation damage may occur at clear water velocities of between 12 to 15 m/ damaging effects of cavitation erosion may be reduced or stopped by decreasing the critical cavitation number (e.g.

removal of surface irregularities), increasing the cavitation Air entrainment in chutes and spillways book of the material surface (e.g.

use of steel fibre concrete), using a. Hubert Chanson is the author of twenty books, including "Hydraulic Design of Stepped Cascades, Channels, Weirs and Spillways" (Pergamon, ), "Air Bubble Entrainment in Free-Surface Turbulent Shear Flows" (Academic Press, ), "The Hydraulics of Open Channel Flow: An Introduction" (Butterworth-Heinemann, 1st edition2nd editon Stepped channels and spillways have been used for more than 2, years but recently new construction materials have renewed interest in stepped chutes.

The steps significantly increase the rate of energy dissipation taking place on the spillway face and reduce the size of the required downstream energy dissipation basin.

Stepped cascades are also used in water treatment plants to enhance the. The basic shapes of aerators are a ramp, an offset and a groove. The ramp and the offset tend to deflect the spillway flow away from the chute surface.

Cavitation in Chutes and Spillways – Henry T. Falvey – Google Books. In the cavity formed below the nappe, a local subpressure is produced by which air is sucked into the flow e. Investigations of air demand in siphon spillways were performed in circular and rectangular pipes, with slopes ranging from horizontal to vertical.

Usually the rate of air entrainment (table ) is lower than in conventional hydraulic jumps (table ). The siphon conduit restricts the amount of available air. Cavitation in chutes and spillways [] Collection delivery service resumes on Wednesday 2 January In presence of gas content, flows may cavitate at higher static pressures and substantial quantities of air produce a large reduction in damage rate.

The ramp and the offset tend to deflect the spillway flow away from the chute surface. Spillways are facilities for conveying excess streamflows past a dam. In important projects on major rivers, spillways are sized to discharge extreme floods. At a concrete gravity dam, the spillway is typically made part of the main structure, providing an overflow that is either uncontrolled or regulated by gates (Fig.

12).At an embankment dam, the spillway is usually a channel (chute) or. 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.

presented an analysis of air entrainment in open channel flows. This paper deals with some aspects of the air entrainment process along the chute of spillway and study of pressure fluctuations. The experimental study has been carried out using stepped spillway model located in the campus of Government College of Engineering, Amravati (India).

It is observed that air concentration is increasing with discharge as well as with number of step. Abstract. Air entrained has become one of the main variables in the study of large spillways performance since it can help avoiding cavitation.

Moreover, high rates of air concentration produce significant bulking of the flow as well as a water–solid friction reduction, generating flow acceleration and increasing maximum velocities at the inlet of the energy dissipation structure. Aerators on spillways may be regarded as an effective protection against cavitational erosion.

The air entrainment of aerators is governed by a number of independent parameters, that include the slopes of the spillway and the aerator, the heights of ramp and offset, the approaching flow depth and Froude number, and the stagnation pressure in the nappe cavity.

The performance in predicting the flow over the chute spillway with air entrainment and the stepped spillways of the linear k-e turbulence models (standard (Boussinesq ), RNG (Choudhury Uniform flow with natural air entrainment on spillway chutes is considered. Based on the experimental data of Straub and Anderson, the air-concentration profiles are first investigated.

A similarity plot is presented, which unifies the data pertaining to various chute slopes. First, an expression for the average air concentration is deduced. SELF-AERATED FLOWS ON CHUTES AND SPILLWAYS by H.

CHANSON1 Abstract: In open channel flows an important design parameter is the amount of entrained air. The presence of air within the flow increases not only the bulk of the flow but also the transfer of atmospheric gases (e.g.

oxygenation). Further aeration of high-velocity flows may prevent or. Natural air entrainment is a phenomenon which occurs in high velocity free surface flows and can be observed in spillway chutes, as illustrated, for example, in Figure 1.

Due to air entrainment, the flow becomes white and foamy (so-called “white waters”), which can be visually identified. Figure 1 - Aviemore dam: view of the spillway chute from.

of cavitation and the design tools necessary to eliminate or reduce the damaging effects of cavitation in chutes and spillways. The physical model used to analyze the aeration effects consists of a spillway chute m high and a stilling basin of 10 m length and 2 m high. A pump and compressor supply the water-air mixture and are controlled at the entrance by valves and flowmeters.

The book also covers the effects of flow aeration and air-bubble entrainment as well as the process of air-water gas transfer taking place above the stepped chute.

Practical examples of hydraulic design and a critical review of the risks of accidents and failures with stepped channels makes this book a useful reference tool for professional. We discuss, apply and validate several physics-based criteria for air entrainment into flows on steep stepped spillways, using laboratory observations and numerical results published elsewhere.

To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time a validation of these criteria is undertaken for any chute flow in general, and for the skimming.
