Experimental analysis of the Hydrass flushing gate and laboratory validation of flush propagation modelling

A. Campisano, E. Creaco & C. Modica
Periodical cleansing operations result necessary inside sewer systems in order to reduce the hydraulic and environmental problems due to the accumulation of deposits on the bottom of channels. For this objective, new effective hydraulic devices based on the scouring effects of flushing waves have been recently set-up and adopted in many sewer systems. In this paper, the results of an experimental and numerical investigation on the hydraulic operation of the Hydrass flushing gate are reported....
