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.

Effective void ratio and rack length definition by experimental measurements of flow with gravel size sediment through bottom racks
Author : LUIS G. CASTILLO(1), JUAN T. GARCÍA(2) & JOSÉ M.CARRILLO(3)
ABSTRACT
This work is focused on the study of bottom rack intake systems located in ephemeral and torrential streams. Clear water,
and water with gravel sediments have been analyzed. Different tests have been carried out to quantify the influence of the
solids passing through the racks. The wetted rack lengths and the efficiency of racks are studied. The clear water has
been also modeled with computational fluid dynamics, and compared with the measured obtained at Universidad
Politécnica de Cartagena. Experimental and numerical studies that characterize both, the clear water and the influence of
solid load in the operation of the bottom racks, will allow us to improve the existing design criteria.
