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. The monograph discusses basic. The course is intended to give the participants an understanding of cavitation on chutes and spillways. The course will be introduced with a video of a case study.

Engineering monographs ; no. Cavity collapses generate extremely high anv in their immediate vicinity. Useful Water Harvesting Systems or Relics? Operation of a 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.

Cavitation in chutes and spillways [1990]

Can I view this online? His publication record includes over international refereed papers and his work was cited over 4, times WoS to 16, times Google Scholar since Water in a Changing World ” Valentine et al. The course will be introduced with a video of a case study that illustrates some of the fundamentals of cavitation and an explanation of why cavitation causes damage.


The practice to design a large number of air inlets is completely empirical and un-economical. A clear understanding of cavitation and how it is formed.

Cavitation and air entrainment Cavitation is defined as the explosive growth of vapour bubbles. The availability of tools to study cavitation on chutes and spillways. Further information on the Library’s opening hours is available at: Nurek tunnel spillwayaerators had to be shut down to reduce the excessive aeration in the tunnel.

More pictures of self-aeration are here See what’s been added to the collection in the current spillwqys 2 3 4 5 6 weeks davitation years.

Special thanks to our sustaining members. Cavitation in chutes and spillways. In this section Open Close. The contribution of the downstream free-surface aeration is an uppermost important parameter, often neglected by design engineers.

For these reasons, it becomes usual cavotation 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 the sidewalls Figure 1 CHANSONChap.


Design of Spillway Aeration Devices to prevent cavitation damage on high-head chutes

The optimum location of the first aerator and the required aerator spacing depend essentially upon the free-surface aeration potential.
