In this section Open Close. The basic shapes of aerators are a ramp, an offset and a groove. His Internet home page is http: FALVEY suggested that the cavity subpressure should be less than one tenth of the critical pressure ratio for sonic velocity to prevent excessive noise.

His research interests include design of hydraulic structures, experimental investigations of two-phase flows, applied hydrodynamics, hydraulic engineering, water quality modelling, environmental fluid mechanics, estuarine processes and natural resources.

CHANSON a,b presented detailed measurements of free-surface aeration along a spillway aerator model and in the downstream flow. Hubert Chanson edited further several books: The damaging effects of cavitation erosion may be reduced or stopped by decreasing the critical cavitation number e.

Cavitation in chutes and spillways [microform] / by Henry T. Falvey | National Library of Australia

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. In the downstream flow region the air content tends to the uniform equilibrium air concentration for the channel slope see Self-aeration studies. 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.

The main flow regions above a bottom aeration device are: 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. Discussion The quantity of air supplied by the air ducts is not always an caviyation design parameter in term of aerator efficiency.
