Abstract [en]

When migrating fish tries to pass around man made obstacles such as hydropower dams with the aid of fish passages it is important that the migrating path is constructed in an efficient manner. By designing the entrance of the fishway in a manner that gives attractive flow conditions for migrating fish, the overall passage efficiency can be increased. In this study two alternative design solutions have been studied with numerical simulations, lab-scale experiments and in-field testing to achieve such attractive flow. Designs studied are constructions yielding a submerged jet, in order to increase the velocity of the flow at the entrance, and a half-cylinder, in order to create vortices that the fishes can utilize when continuing their journey towards their spawning grounds. A combination of the previous mentioned setups was also investigated. A first result shows that the increase in velocity decreases the residence time downstream the fishway and increases the total passage efficiency while the result from the vorticity generation is inconclusive at this point. The combination of the two designs shows similar passage efficiency as with only velocity increase although it does not show the same decrease in residence time. Improvements on the design of the vorticity generator and shape optimization of the construction generating the jet could further improve the efficiency of the fishway
