Abstract: In this work, the comparison of the velocity field over a bottom rack system measured by Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and simulated with numerical simulations (ANSYS CFX v14.0) is presented. Laboratory measurements are taken in a physical device located in the Laboratory of Hydraulic Engineering of the Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena (Spain). Velocity and pressure coefficients of the energy equation are obtained and used to evaluate the water profile along the racks. Pressure distribution along the flow depth is presented for several distances along the rack. Pressure results are compared with the pressure deviation terms from hydrostatic pressure profile proposed by several authors.
