Resumen

GARCIA-RODRIGUEZ, Isabel Xiomara  y  RODRIGUEZ-BARCAZA, Raúl. Evaluation of the sedimentation process of discrete particles in turbulent flow. Ingeniería Mecánica [online]. 2018, vol.21, n.3, pp.138-144. ISSN 1815-5944.

Frequently, the hydroelectric power miniplants without sand trap have their nozzles blocked. In order to avoid this, a structure that connects itself with the high pressure pipe is created. This project has the objective of assessing the sedimentation process of the discrete particles in this structure. The author of this project used the strata method for the selection of the sample, the Runge Kutta 2 for the simulation of the particles (stones) movement and the SolidWork program to simulate the behavior of the water flow lines. It is demonstrated that this mechanism avoids the obstruction of nozzles because of stones, coming to the conclusion that the sedimentation process in turbulent flow occurs in particles with a diameter of > 2mm. The appropriate behavior of the system creates interesting opportunities for the generalization of this experience in hydroelectric power plants which do not have sand trap.

Palabras clave : sedimentation; discrete particles; sedimentation rate.
