Metrics details Abstract Controlling cavitation occurrence is one of the most important factors in chute spillways designing due to high velocity and the negative pressure of flow. A probabilistic design approach was implemented in the present study to estimate the probability of cavitation occurrence on chute spillways. In addition, the uncertainty presence of the effective parameters in the limit state function related to the cavitation occurrence was highlighted in the present design. The probability of cavitation occurrence was studied based on the reliability of first order reliable method FORM and it was controlled by Monte Carlo simulation method. The data was extracted from eighteen spillways laboratory models built by the Iranian Water Research Institute, among which ten were aerated and eight were without aerator. Accordingly, as a result of the performance of these spillways and the cavitation occurrence in the prototype, a graph and its relationship was found for controlling the cavitation occurrence and its failure probability based on the mean velocity and flow mean pressure along the chute spillway.

His publication record includes over international refereed papers and his work was cited over 4, times WoS to 16, times Google Scholar since In the cavity formed below the nappe, a local subpressure is produced by which air is sucked into the flow e. The optimum location of the first aerator and the required aerator spacing depend essentially upon the free-surface aeration potential.

In fact the total quantity of air entrained above an aerator is related to the interfacial aeration at both upper and lower nappes, rather the air supply. More about Minimum Energy Loss weirs Discussion The quantity of air supplied by the air ducts is chutfs always an important design parameter in term of aerator efficiency. The practice to design a large number of air inlets is completely empirical and un-economical.
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. Can I view this online? Air bubbles are redistributed downstream of an aeration device as in self-aerated flows and there is a complete analogy between the flow downstream of an aerator and self-aerated flows.

The damaging effects of cavitation erosion may be reduced or stopped by decreasing the critical cavitation number e. 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 the sidewalls Figure 1 CHANSON , Chap. Cavitation and air entrainment Cavitation is defined as the explosive growth of vapour bubbles. It involves the entire sequence of events : bubble formation extending to bubble disappearance. After formation, cavitation bubbles may be carried away into regions of higher local pressures, before disappearing by collapse. Cavity collapses generate extremely high pressures in their immediate vicinity. In presence of gas content, flows may cavitate at higher static pressures and substantial quantities of air produce a large reduction in damage rate.
