Prediction of the cavitation in a chute spillway using a fuzzy system


In this paper, a fuzzy system was trained for predicting the cavitation in a chute spillway. In order to train the fuzzy system, data obtained from the experimental measurements was utilized. Experiments were performed on the scaled model of a chute spillway at Water Research Institute of Iran. Also, a least squares algorithm was employed to train the fuzzy system such that it accomplishes the desired performance. Comparisons of the predicted cavitation by the fuzzy system were found to be in a good agreement with those obtained by the experimental measurements.
