Abstract: The optimization of a hydropower plant intake aims to produce uniform and stable flow to the turbine and to minimize the occurrence and strength of free surface vortices capable of disrupting the flow. Free surface vortices are particularly problematic because their occurrence and strength are difficult to predict. This paper presents preliminary results from experimental and numerical modelling of vortices in two geometric variants of a simplified intake. The evolution of vorticity along the length of the vortices is studied and qualitative differences are identified and discussed.
Description: Paper presented at The Seventh International Conference on HydroScience and Engineering (ICHE) hosted by the College of Engineering at Drexel Univeristy on September 10-13, 2006 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The conference theme was IT in the Field of HydroSciences. It included several mini-symposia that emphasized IT topics in HydroSciences and the yearly meeting of the metadata group of the International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange organization.
