CFD-model to measure flood discharge capasity

Publisert: 8. January, 2021

We have recently estabslished a CFD-model at Hellefoss Kraftverk. The model will mainly be used to investigate possible measures to increase flood discharge capacity.

The flow conditions are largely controlled by the upstream seabed profile, and an accurate representation of the bathymetry has been established from point clouds provided by Styvehavn AS. The model will be validated against full-scale tests on the dam, which are to be carried out as soon as conditions allow for it.

We would like to thank our committed partners, Glitre Energi and Styvehavn for a great collaboration so far! The work continues and we will publish more updates when results are available.
