The use in the determination of the effective length of sand traps of hydroelectric plants of the procedure recommended in the norms indicates that a settlement probability W greater than 85-90 9o can be achieved only when they are very long. For this reason, in the TUiN norms it is recommended to limit the setdement probability to not over 80-9090, independently of the volume of sediments in the stream. This recommendation is basically unfounded, since for a large volume of sediments in a stream flow, the p…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
