Distribution of velocities in aquaculture circular tanks with rotating flow and evaluation of uniformity

  title={Distribution of velocities in aquaculture circular tanks with rotating flow and evaluation of uniformity},
  author={Ingrid Masal{\'o} Llor{\`a} and Joan Oca Baradad},
Control of velocities in aquaculture tanks is very important, since fish need certain velocities for maintaining general health and also a minimum veloc ity is needed to eliminate biosolids. In circular t nks or rectangular tanks with rotating flow, where wate r is injected tangentially to the tank wall, the av erage velocity is controlled by the impulse force Fi (Equation 1) and affected by flow rate and water v locity inlet (Tvinnereim and Skybakmoen, 1989; Oca and Mas aló, 2007a). The flow…

Use of the tank resistance coefficient to evaluate modifications of water inlet devices in rotating flowtanks
Two types of water inlet were tested: one consisting of a single water jet entry (simple) for each rotating cell with the water jet 3cm depth, and another one, consisting of double water jet entry
Vortex-settling basin design considerations
The vortex‐settling basin (VSB) is a fluidic device that uses only the vortices of the flow to remove sediment. This is an economical, efficient, and water‐conserving alternative to the other
Velocity distributions in a hydrocyclone separator
Abstract The internal three-dimensional flow field in a hydrocyclone was studied using laser velocimetry. Seven axial planes were investigated for three different inlet flow rates and three
