Flow regime transition mechanisms in rapidly filling stormwater storage tunnels


An issue in the design of combined sewer overflow storage tunnels is to avoid “geysering” which is an air/water mixture blowing up through vertical shafts connected to the tunnel. Studies indicate that the origin of this phenomenon is the entrapment of large air pockets as the rapidly filling tunnel undergoes a transition between free surface and… (More)
