Elements for Energy Dissipation
(HI-002.1.8)
  • Comparison of the effect of different elements for energy dissipation such as: chute blocks, baffle blocks and end sills.
  • Observation of the hydraulic jump with and without end sills respectively baffle blocks.

This module is used to study the energy dissipation downstream of an ogee-crested weir.

  • The elements for energy dissipation are used for the experimental flume.
  • It is used as an accessory for the Ogee-crested weir with two weir outlets module.
  • all elements are made of PVC.
  • The elements include one chute block, two baffle blocks with five rectangular blocks, one baffle block with five triangular blocks, and two end sills with different height.
  • The base plate contains evenly spaced threaded holes.
