IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

A new simulation model for damage of cavitation and silt erosion
tion and silt erosion usually occurs simultaneously in hydraulic structures and hydro-machinery of high
dam in a silt-laden river. A new model is necessary to be proposed for prediction of the synergetic damage. This model
derived from experiments of cavitation and silt erosion for ASMT 1045 carbon steel in silt-laden water with three sediment
concentrations (25 kg/m3, 50 kg/m3, and 85 kg/m3) and five mean sizes (0.531 mm, 0.253 mm, 0.063 mm, 0.042 mm and
0.026 mm) with 4 hours duration time by means of a special vibratory apparatus. The experiment results present that
sediments aggravated cavitation damage while their sizes are larger than an indicated size; conversely, the damage is
relieved. Hence, sediment size strongly dominates the various effects on damage and this model is built on the
phenomenon. The model was thus set up by an integral with accessible superimposition between the relations of damage
and three factors of time, size, concentration as the integrand and the particle size distribution as domain of integration.Form Required :
