Assessment of the ability of a volume of fluid model to reproduce the efficiency of a continuous transverse gully with grate
Rights accessOpen Access
This paper deals with the numerical investigation of the drainage efficiency of a continuous transverse gully with the grate’s slots aligned in the flow direction and compared with experimental data sets. The gully efficiency attained with a three-dimensional (3D) numerical model is compared and validated against experimental data. The numerical simulations are performed using a computational fluid dynamics volume of fluid solver. Different slopes, from 0 to 10%, and a wide range of drainage flows, from 6.67 to 66.67¿¿L/s/m66.67¿¿L/s/m, are simulated. The linear relation between Froude number and efficiency of the gully is in agreement to the one experimentally obtained.
