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. Aerators are designed to deflect high velocity flow away from the chute surface Figure 4.

Operation of spillwayx spillway aeration device 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.

The required surface tolerance to prevent damage with and without aeration. To learn more about how to request items watch this short online video. More pictures of self-aeration are here The practice to design a large number of air inlets is completely empirical and un-economical. The Spreadsheet can be used to analyze chutes and spillways for their hydraulic and cavitation performance, to design aerators, to determine the best vertical alignment to minimize cavitation inception, and to analyze the cavitation damage caitation of historic data.

The presence of air bubbles within the flow might also affect the collapse mechanisms, re-directing the water hammer jets away from the solid boundary.

Nurek tunnel spillwayaerators had to be shut down to reduce the excessive aeration in the tunnel. 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 downstream flow region to maximise air entrainment.

His Internet home page is http: In the cavity formed below the nappe, a local subpressure is produced by which air is sucked into the flow e. We will contact you if necessary.

Collection delivery service resumes on Wednesday 2 January The optimum location of the first aerator and the required aerator spacing depend essentially upon the free-surface aeration potential. The course will be introduced with a video of a case study that illustrates spkllways of the fundamentals of cavitation and an explanation of why cavitation causes damage.
