Air Entrainment Vortex Occurrence at Intakes

Water depths in intake structures that are high, increased vortex occurrences. The study showed decay response function of pumps affect vortex occurrences. Relationship between response function and time duration of air-entraining vortex occurrence was established. Relationship showed an increased head loss if air-entraining vortex duration increased. Representation showed pump response function will peak and fall…
