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.

Contrast and Analysis on Hydraulic Characteristics of Gongboxia Horizontal Gyrating Discharge Tunnel between Prototype and Models
Author : Junhu Nan, Zhengming Niu and Di Hong
The horizontal gyrating discharge tunnel is one of the most efficient internal dissipation technology from the view point of ecological environment and economic benefit. Based on the prototype and model tests of Gongboxia hydropower station, the hydraulic characteristics of horizontal gyrating flow, such as flow pattern, pressure, velocity, ventilation and energy dissipation ratio, were analyzed and compared The results indicated that the flow pattern of prototype and models in weir section are fundamentally similar, and the discharge conform to basic law of pressure orifice outflow and gravity similarity principle. In vertical shaft, the annular cavity length differences between prototype and models are greater, therefore, the velocity near the wall, pressure change process, negative pressure value and ventilation of models are not similar to prototype and have obvious scale effect, the strength of scale effect is proportional to the scale. For 1:40 or the model with a greater scale, the relative ventilation ratio approaches 1.0 in the starting rotation device ventilating shaft. The energy dissipation ratio of horizontal gyrating discharge tunnel is up to 84% and the ratios between prototype and models are basically consistent.
