Abstract

이 연구는 이러한 구조물의 가장 중요한 설계 매개변수 중 하나인 슈트 여수로의 플립 버킷에서 동적 압력을 조사합니다. 첫째, 압력에 영향을 미치는 무차원 매개변수를 치수해석을 통해 결정하였다.

그 후, 플립 버킷으로 이어지는 슈트 여수로가 있는 선택된 댐의 특성에 따라 플립 버킷으로의 특정 Froude 수 간격과 슈트 경사 각도, 반경 및 플립 버킷 곡률 각도가 분석을 위해 선택되었습니다.

이러한 매개변수의 조합으로 FLOW-3D에서 총 137개 모델을 시뮬레이션하여 플립 버킷의 바닥 압력과 최대 압력 값을 얻었습니다.

다음으로 고려된 무차원 매개변수를 기반으로 다중 회귀 분석을 사용하여 슈트의 플립 버킷 다운스트림에서 바닥 압력과 최대 압력을 결정하기 위한 방정식이 제안되었습니다. 수치 모델링 실행 결과와 다중 회귀 분석을 사용하여 무차원 압력 관계의 미지의 계수를 결정하고 바닥 압력과 최대 압력에 대한 최종 방정식을 제시했습니다.

저압과 최고압을 결정하기 위해 제안된 식의 상관계수와 MAPE(Mean Absolute Percentage Error) 값은 각각 0.94와 0.96, 6.75%와 8.49%였습니다.

이 값은 제안된 방정식의 적절한 정확도를 나타냅니다. 제안된 방정식에서 Froude 수, 상대 곡률, 슈트 경사각, 이륙 각도 및 플립 버킷의 곡률 각도가 각각 저면 압력과 최대 압력에 가장 큰 영향을 미쳤습니다.

This study investigates the dynamic pressure at the flip buckets of chute spillways, which is one of the most important design parameters of these structures. First, the dimensionless parameters affecting pressure were determined by dimensional analysis. Following that, according to the characteristics of selected dams with chute spillways leading to flip buckets, certain Froude number intervals of inflow to the flip bucket, as well as the chute slope angle, radius, and flip bucket curvature angle were selected for analysis. The combination of these parameters resulted in a total of 137 models simulated in FLOW-3D to obtain bottom pressure and maximum pressure values in the flip bucket. Next, based on the dimensionless parameters considered, equations were proposed to determine the bottom pressure and maximum pressure in the flip bucket downstream of the chute, using multiple regression analysis. Using the numerical modeling run results, along with multiple regression analyses, the unknown coefficients of the dimensionless pressure relationship were determined, and final equations for the bottom pressure and maximum pressure were presented. The correlation coefficient and Mean Absolute Percentage Error (MAPE) values of the proposed equations for determining the bottom pressure and maximum pressure were 0.94 and 0.96, and, 6.75% and 8.49%, respectively. These values indicate the appropriate accuracy of the proposed equations. In the proposed equations, the Froude number, relative curvature, chute slope angle, takeoff angle, and flip bucket’s curvature angle, respectively, had the highest impacts on the bottom pressure and maximum pressure.
