9780080419183: Hydraulic Design of Stepped Cascades, Channels, Weirs, & Spillways

Stepped channels and spillways have been used for more than 2500 years, but recently new construction materials have renewed interest in stepped chutes. The steps significantly increase the rate of energy dissipation taking place on the spillway face and reduce the size of the required downstream energy dissipation basin. Stepped cascades are also used in water treatment plants to enhance the air-water transfer of atmospheric gases and of volatile organic components. This book presents new material on the hydraulic characteristics of stepped chute flows. Two different flow regimes can occur: nappe flow regime for small discharges and flat channel slopes; and skimming flow regime - the hydraulics of each flow regime are described. The book also covers the effects of flow aeration and air-bubble entrainment as well as the process of air-water gas transfer taking place above the stepped chute. Practical examples of hydraulic design and a critical review of the risks of accidents and failures with stepped channels makes this book a useful reference tool for professional engineers, postgraduates and researchers in the field.

Review:

...Chanson has written a very interesting book on a subject that is attracting a great deal of interest at this time. -- N. Rajaratnam, Journal of Hydraulic Engineering, December 1995

1996 This book is very much about stepped channels and chutes and contains a wealth of knowledge on these subjects.... The book is well documented and gives the impression of being very thorough.... I was pleased to feel that the author does all he can to assist the reader in coming to grips with the material by showing results in graphical form, adding comments to results and also be giving examples of how to do calculations while in the process of making design. -- R.J. de Jong, The Netherlands, Journal of Hydraulic Research, Vol. 34, No. 2,

This excellent text covers both the theory and practice of various types of stepped channels in a comprehensive manner, including the use of new materials and a chapter on the risk of accidents and failures with stepped channels. The book is well referenced and contains a great deal of useful data. -- 1995
