STILLING BASINS

MAIN FEATURES

  • Selection of an unlimited number of stilling basins for each analysis
  • Definition of layout through structure dimensions, upstream sill height, downstream sill height, etc.
  • Investigation of an unlimited number of load conditions for each structure
  • Description of each load condition through expected volume flow rate, flow depth in the upstream channel, flow depth in the downstream channel, etc.
  • Computation of upstream boundary conditions from energy balance at the upstream section
  • Computation of hydraulic jump features (conjugate depths, energy dissipation, etc.) from force balance between the upstream and downstream sections
  • Computation of downstream boundary conditions from energy balance at the downstream section
  • Comparison of results with available field data
  • Visualisation of results
  • Suitable for designing and testing
