Workshop FRANCIS-99

The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norway, and Luleå University of Technology (LTU), Sweden, announced three workshops for Francis turbines. The goal of the first one was to determine the state-of-the-art of numerical predictions for steady operating conditions. The second and the third workshop will be focused on transient operation of turbines and fluid-structure interaction, respectively. In all workshops, a high-head Francis turbine model (Tokke model) will be employed as a reference test case. The model was designed and experimentally measured at Water Power Laboratory at NTNU.

Aljaž Škerlavaj and Mitja Morgut attended Workshop FRANCIS-99 in Trondheim, Norway. ACCUSIM group participated with the paper:

Numerical simulation of flow in a high head Francis turbine with prediction of efficiency, rotor stator interaction and vortex structures in the draft tube
