Abstract
This paper investigates the effect of water in the dynamic response of large trash-racks used in hydropower plants. These are large structures that are fully submerged in water and located in the hydraulic circuits to prevent debris and large bodies from entering the turbine. These structures are prone to suffering fatigue damage. Broken bars are rather common, which can produce damage in the turbine and other hydraulic components. To avoid fatigue problems, the trash-racks must be designed to ...
