Explosive Loading of Surface Ships
This paper describes the recent development of numerical methods which have accurately predicted the response of surface ships subjected to underwater explosion tests. The technique couples...

Data Acquisition and Analysis of Pressure Fluctuations in Hydraulic Jumps
The paper reports on a study to procure basic data on large pressure fluctuations in hydraulic jump stilling basins. Interest in pressure fluctuations relates to: the effect of dynamic...

Behavior of Cavity Masonry Walls Under Out-of-Plane Lateral Loading: An Analytical Approach
In this paper, a finite element model is used to analyze cavity walls in an attempt to understand their complex behavior and to evaluate the adequacy of the assumptions embodied in the...

Three-Dimensional Simulation of a Buoyancy-Driven Cavity Flow
The preliminary results of a numerical investigation of natural convection flow in a three-dimensional cavity heated from below are presented. The transient three-dimensional simulation...

Cavitation in Various Types of Shear Flow
Cavitation in turbulent shear flow depends on the intensity and spectral characteristics of the pressure fluctuations in a Lagrangian frame of reference as well as depending on the concentration...

Modeling Aeration Devices for Glen Canyon Dam
The 41-ft (12. 5-m) diameter tunnel spillways at Glen Canyon Dam experienced major damage during the 1983 spring runoff. This damage was initiated by cavitation. Hydraulic model studies...

A High-Impulse Short-Duration Load Generator

Operation of Glen Canyon Dam Spillways--Summer 1983
Flood control at Glen Canyon Dam is provided by a 41-ft (12. 5-m) diameter tunnel spillway in each abutment. Each spillway is designed to pass 138,000 ft**3/sec (3907. 7 m**3/sec). The...

Avoiding Cavitation Damage to Hydraulic Structures
Cavitation damage often may be avoided by not allowing cavities to form. Where boundaries are not deeply submerged, their shape must be exactly correct, irregularities must be very small,...

Cavitation Inception from Cylindrical Holes
The inception of cavitation due to circular holes in a boundary is studied. Laboratory experiments were conducted to define limited cavitation as a function of the hole depth to diameter...

Prototype Studies of Corps of Engineers Structures Experiencing Cavitation Damage
A number of Corps of Engineers structures have sustained damage caused by the occurrence of cavitation. The damage has varied from slight pitting to severe erosion. The damage has occurred...

Aeration is the Solution for Sluice Cavitation Damage at Libby Dam, Montana
Cavitation has severely damaged two of the high-head flood control sluices. The damaged areas were immediately patched; however, these patches were not considered a solution to the problem....
