  • Establishment and application of three-dimensional realistic river terrain in the numerical modeling of flow over spillways

    We present an integrated three-dimensional (3D) spillway model where the realistic and complicated river terrain is implemented by the platform CATIA (Computer Aided Three Dimensional Interactive Application). This integrated 3D spillway model allows for complicated topographic and geomorphic conditions and describes the spatial distribution of the spillway dam (upstream reservoir, downstream ...

  • Meshless particle modelling of free surface flow over spillways

    A meshless Lagrangian (particle) method based on the weakly compressible moving particle semi-implicit formulation (WC-MPS) is developed and analysed for simulation of flow over spillways. To improve the accuracy of the model for pressure and velocity calculation, some modifications are proposed and evaluated for the inflow and wall boundary conditions implementation methods. The final model ...

  • Experimental study on improvement effect of guide wall to water flow in bend of spillway chute

    In order to improve water flow in a bend of a spillway chute using a guide wall, modeling experiments with or without a guide wall under conditions of three different bend axial radii, three chute bottom slopes and three flow rates were carried out in this study. Two indexes were calculated, which are the improved water surface uniformity and the reduced rate of water surface difference in ...

  • Analyzing the turbulent flow on steep open channels

    In channels with steep slopes, the flow is supercritical and the formation of roll waves is expected. In order to evaluate the flow behaviors in steep open channels, the Azad dam spillway is simulated numerically and its flow characteristics are compared with the physical model tests. In this study, the hydraulic variables including hydraulic depth and water surface profile are studied along ...

  • Prediction of cavitation damage on spillway using K-nearest neighbor modeling

    Cavitation is a common and destructive process on spillways that threatens the stability of the structure and causes damage. In this study, based on the nearest neighbor model, a method has been presented to predict cavitation damage on spillways. The model was tested using data from the Shahid Abbaspour dam spillway in Iran. The level of spillway cavitation damage was predicted for eight ...
