Abstract

Criteria for developing operating curves for annular flumes and defining appropriate values for shear stress for erosion and deposition experiments are proposed. The work of several authors is reviewed and new large eddy simulations (LES) are presented for the annular flume in the Ven Te Chow Hydrosystems Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (VTCHL), USA. The CFD simulation methodology is validated with experimental data by Petersen and Krishnappan (1994). Then, the code is used to address the flow characteristics in the VTCHL annular flume. Two different pairs of operating curve and shear stress definitions are proposed based in this study: one for erosion experiments and one for deposition experiments.
