Sediment Exclusion at Hydropower Intakes Using Submerged Vanes

Hydraulic Model Investigation of Submerged Vanes for the Intake Structure at Fort Calhoun Station

Performance of Submerged Vanes for Control of Sediment in an Irrigation Canal
Removal of accumulated sediments from irrigation canals is necessary in order to maintain canal capacity. Removal of these sediments may be enhanced by directing and concentrating sediments...

Case History Evaluating Field Vane Correction Factors

Submerged Vane Projects for Bank Stabilization and Sedimentation Management
Submerged vanes are small flow training devices placed in a stream to eliminate or create secondary currents to direct sediment in a controlled fashion. In recent years submerged vanes...

Sediment Management with Submerged Vanes
Submerged vanes are small river training structures used for protection of streambanks against erosion and for amelioration of shoaling problems in navigation channels, at water intakes,...

Groins and Vanes Developed Basing Upon a New Concept of Bank Protection
At curved bends, scour at the outer bank always accompanies deposition at the inner bank. A highly efficient river course for flood flow is considered to have a small lateral gradient...

Peak Load Shaving with a Fixed Blade, Fixed Vane Propeller Turbine

Performance of Draft Tubes for Small-Hydropower Turbines
Tests of several conical and elbow-type draft tubes were conducted with varying degrees of upstream swirl. This swirl was generated by variable-geometry vanes. Draft tube efficiencies...

Hydro Machinery Problem Solving Experiences
Within the last decade the use of modern data acquisition instrumentation and techniques have moved the subject of the machinery problem solving into a more scientific arena. This paper...

Sediment Control by Submerged Vanes

Vane Shear Testing for Staged Construction
Staged construction was used for the earthfill embankment of Birch Dam in order to compensate for low strength clays in the foundation. Sampling and testing of foundation soils verified...

Submerged Vanes for Sediment Control in Rivers
A procedure is developed for a rational design of a system of submerged vanes for depth control in alluvial-river channels. The vanes are vertical, small-aspect ratio foils installed on...

Changes in Strength of Silt Due to Freeze-Thaw
A laboratory test program was conducted to determine the effect of water content on strength of a Manchester silt subjected to freeze-thaw. Samples were prepared at 10% and 20% moisture...

Design Verification of HVAC Duct Turning Vanes in Nuclear Power Plants
HVAC ducts in nuclear power plants utilize short radius elbow construction with turning vanes to minimize the space requirement for duct work and to reduce flow losses in the elbows. Turning...

Intake-Shoaling and Pump-Vibration Problems
Iowa Generation's Council Bluffs Unit 3 circulating water-intake structure has experienced two major problems: (1) formation of sand bars in front of the trash racks during...
