Abstract


The objective of this work is to investigate the impacts of the future widening of the Nubaria
Canal on the cooling system (intakes/ \ outfalls) behavior of the Nubaria Thermal Power Plant (NTPP)
which consists of 3 modules, I, II, and III .
The experimental work shows that widening the canal system affects the heat dispersion in the low
flow period as the flow velocity will be reduced. A proposed redesign of the outfall structure of
module III was tested by the physical model. The new design includes a reduction in the width of the
outfall structure, a change in its inclination to the flow direction and relocation of the outfall structure.
The new configuration and arrangement of the outfall structure of module III helps in reducing the
temperature rise at the far bank of the Nubaria Canal and to complies with the regulations stated by
the environmental protection laws. Also, the cross flow velocity at the centerline of the new outfall
structure of module III was recorded to be less than 0.3 m/s, thus meeting the navigation safety
requirements.
