HYDRAULIC DESIGN OF POOLED STEP CASCADES. Detlef Aigner. Technische Universitaet Dresden, Germany. Tel + E-mail [email protected] Abstract: Cascades and stepped chutes are used for the discharge of water over dams or steep slopes.

These are sequentially placed drops which either enable the step by step dissipation of the hydraulic energy or overflow by skimming flow. This excellent text covers both the theory and practice of various types of stepped channels in a comprehensive manner, including the use of new materials and a chapter on the risk of accidents and failures with stepped channels.

The book is well referenced and contains a great deal of useful data. -. Hydraulic design of stepped cascades, channels, weirs, and spillways.

Editorial Reviews. Chanson (hydraulics and environmental engineering) briefly reviews the 2,year history of using stepped channels and spillways to distribute the energy of a flow along the channel and thus reduce the energy at the bottom; and in water treatment plants to enhance the air-water transfer of atmospheric gasses and volatile organic : This chute flow may be either smooth or stepped.

This paper investigates stepped chutes and how they affect the aeration efficiency. It is demonstrated that stepped chutes are very efficient at oxygen transfer because of the strong turbulent mixing associated with substantial air bubble entrainment and that this advantage becomes more Cited by: Hydraulic design of stepped cascades, channels, weirs, and spillways.

As with most high-velocity free-surface flows, stepped spillway flows become self-aerated when the drop height exceeds a critical value. Due to the step-induced macro-roughness, the flow field becomes more turbulent than on a similar smooth-invert chute.

For this reason, cascades are oftentimes used as re-aeration structures in wastewater treatment. However, for stepped spillways as flood Cited by: 1. Stepped channel design has been in use for more than 3, years. Recent advances in technology have triggered a regained interest in stepped design, although much expertise has been lost in the last 80 years.

The steps significantly increase the rate of energy dissipation taking place along the chute and reduce the size of the required downstream energy dissipation basin.5/5(1). Hydraulics of Stepped Chutes and Spillways is a useful contribution to the field of hydraulics.

Stepped cascades are recognised for both aeration potential and energy dissipation, and have been employed in hydraulic structures for over 3, years.

The book provides a new understanding of stepped channel hydraulics, and it is aimed at both the research and professional community. In the introduction (chapter 1), the basic concepts of stepped channels and stepped chute flows are described.

A clear distinction is made between the main flow regimes (nappe flow, transition and skimming flow).Author: Hubert Chanson. Although it is commonly acknowledged that free-surface aeration is significant in stepped chutes, experimental data are scarce, often limited to very steep slopes (α ~ 50º).

Queensland as part of a Ph.D. project investigating the air -water flow properties of stepped cascades. i.e., one book, sixteen journal papers and twenty-six. This innovative textbook contains numerous examples and practical applications, and is fully illustrated with both colour and black and white photographs.

Dr Chanson introduces the basic principles of open channel flow and takes readers through the key topics of sediment transport, hydraulic modelling and the design of hydraulic structures. The primary purpose of water aeration is to increase the oxygen saturation of the water.

This can be achieved by using hydraulic structures because of substantial air bubble entrainment at these structures. This paper reviewed the literature on hydraulic structures used in water aeration processes.

In steady stepped chute flows, three flow regimes may be observed depending upon the flow rate and step geometry: i.e.

nappe flow, transition flow and skimming flow (e.g. Chanson a).In a dam break wave flow down a stepped cascade, only one flow regime was observed: i.e. a nappe flow consisting of a succession of free-falling nappe, nappe impact and horizontal runoff (Fig. (c)).

In nappe flow, one paper highlighted the complexity of the air-water flow while several papers demonstrated that air entrainment in skimming flow is similar to the self-aeration process observed on smooth-invert chutes (Fig.

It is believed that a major issue affecting these failures was the lack of understanding of the basic turbulent dissipation processes and of the interactions between free-surface aeration and flow turbulence.
