    Incipient motion of solitary air pockets in a rectangular pipe2013In: Journal of Applied Water Engineering and Research, ISSN 2324-9676, E-ISSN 2324-9676, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 58-68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The operation of bottom-outlet gates often gives rise to entrained air in the form of air pockets in the conduit under full-flow conditions. If unexpectedly released, it would cause problems for both personnel security and operational function. The present study addresses, through experimentation, the incipient movement of solitary air pockets in a rectangular pipe. A horizontal pipe and a 9.6° downward-inclined pipe are examined. The cross-section of the pipe measures 200 mm (width) by 250 mm (height). As distinct from a circular pipe, an air pocket in the rectangular pipe exhibits, at its incipient motion, a shape that depends mainly on factors such as the sloping angle of the pipe, cross-sectional location of the air pocket and its volume. These factors also determine the critical velocity of the air pocket. The experiments have shown that only small air pockets can exist under the roof. The corner is a cross-sectionally equilibrium position for larger air pockets. The air pocket in the corner position takes the shape of an elongated rectangular prism in the horizontal pipe and a triangular prism in the sloping one. When compared with a circular pipe, the critical velocity of air pockets in the rectangular pipe is lower if the pipe is horizontal and higher if it has a downward inclination.

    CFD modeling of two-phase flow of a spillway chute aerator of large width2016In: Journal of Applied Water Engineering and Research, ISSN 2324-9676, E-ISSN 2324-9676, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 163-177Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An aerator is frequently used to prevent cavitation damages in high-velocity spillways. To understand its characteristics, one often resorts to physical model tests. To complement physical model tests, computation fluid dynamics simulations are used to determine water-air flow behaviors. With Bergeforsen's 35 m wide aerator, numerical modeling has been performed to evaluate its performance and improve its configuration. The parameters of interest include spillway discharge capacity, air entrainment rate, duct subpressure and air concentration in the aerated flow. The simulated discharge capacity agrees reasonably with experimental data. Due to the larger chute width, empirical formulas do not reasonably predict the air demand. To provide the air required by the aerator, its distribution in the cavity must be guaranteed. We thus looked into the air supply system and the air flux in the cavity to improve the aerator function. Larger vent openings in the middle of the chute are preferable for large-width aerators.
