Numerical Calculations of Flow in Vertical Slot and its Application
Proceedings of the International Symposium on Fishways '95
The Organizing Committee for International Symposium on Fishways '95 in Gifu
Vertical slot is a kind of fishways, and it can be analyzed in horizontally two-dimensional scheme. Numerical analysis of flow in vertical slot fishway is conducted by using a k-e turbulence model, and the flow pattern and velocity distribution in a compartment between vertical slots are obtained. The calculated results are compared with the experimental data to confirm the method of calculation. Systematic calculation based on the present model will provide a discussion on design for favorable geometry of fishways of vertical-slot type.
