Concentrated-Leakage Detection by Emulation of Temperature Field


Article Preview

In order to detect the concentrated leakage passages(CLP) more effectively and precisely, the temperature field emulation method of irregularity dam including seepage and leakage is established based on numerical optimization of concentrated leakage passage detection with kinds of boundary conditions. In this model, the effect of lapse rate, radiation from sun and wind speed on temperature field is included. The flow states of underground water determined, the heat transfer characteristics presented and the coupled relation between seepage and temperature distribution constructed, the coupled equations between seepage and heat transfer are set up.
