S&T Project Number 1885 Final Report: Collaborative Studies to Reduce Flow Induced Damage on Concrete Hydraulic Surfaces

Cavitation and erosion damage to concrete hydraulic surfaces such as spillways and stilling basins are a problem for facilities operated by the Brazilian Government and Reclamation. This document is the final report for a collaboration was begun in 2018 between FURNAS in Brazil and Reclamation to study the complex relationships between concrete properties and hydraulic conditions that induce damage. The aim of this study is to improve guidance for concrete design and repair procedures.
