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

Vibration of Penstocks in Hydroelectric Installations
In many penstocks and pump discharge lines of turbines and pumps, pipe vibrations have been observed. Many of these installations have blade and vane arrangements other than the classic...

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...

Sediment Control by Submerged Vanes

Scour Prevention at Bridge Piers
Laboratory experiments are described in which attempts are made to eliminate local scour at bridge piers using submerged vanes and pier collar. The submerged vanes direct bed load toward,...

Manali Mini Hydro Power Project: A Case Study
The paper describes the various civil, hydromechanical and electrical features of Manali Mini Hydro Power Project which has been set up as a National Demonstration Project. The paper discusses...

Computerized Engineering for the Hydraulic Design of Hydro-Turbine Stay Vanes
To design a turbine stay vane as an integral part of the spiral case/stay vane/wicket gate waterpassage, both the vane geometry and the gate/vane position must be developed and analyzed....

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...

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...
