Abstract: solid matter larger than rack spacing. This project explores the hydraulics of rack intakes. porosity were investigated. An approach to determine the discharge coefficient of a rack Water of mountainous regions is diverted with bottom racks to retain sediment and other studied including a strongly adverse effect on the rack performance. Guidelines for successful Based on laboratory observations, the effects of bottom slope, rack geometry and rack structure was also developed. The intake channel below the bottom rack was particularly rack designs are given, such that the results of the present study may be readily applied.
