Title: International cooling-tower and spray pond symposium

Abstract

This document contains the manuscripts of sixty-one papers that were presented at the 7th Cooling Tower and Spray Pond Symposium of the International Association for Hydraulic Research, organized by the B.E. Vedeneev Institute (VNIIG) and held in Leningrad, USSR, in June 1990. This report represents a worldwide state-of-the-art survey of recent work on cooling towers and spray ponds. Individual papers are indexed separately on the energy database.

  • Data are presented from an additional and on-going EPA and power utility study to evaluate the performance of cooling tower materials in a salt water environment. Tables are presented for reinforced concrete, pressure treated wood, asbestos cement board, fiberglass grid hangers, neoprene asbestos drift eliminators, redwood, stainless steel, and galvanized steel.

  • The 9th Cooling Tower and Spray Pond Symposium, under the auspices of the International Association for Hydraulic Research, took place at the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics, Belgium, in September 1994. Technical topics discussed included cooling system design, performance, operation, environmental effects, modeling and components. Symposium proceedings will not be published. However, information of primary interest to staffs of power plants in the United States is summarized in this article.
  • This document contains the manuscripts of 27 papers that were presented at the 6th Cooling Tower Workshop of the International Association for Hydraulic Research, held at the facilities of ENEL-CRTN (Italian Power Authority, Thermal and Nuclear Research Center, Pisa, Italy), during the period October 4-7, 1988. This report also includes minutes of round table discussions on optimization methods, engineering standards, and materials selection. This document represents a worldwide state-of-the-art survey of recent work on cooling tower performance and environmental impacts.
