The construction of high dams has led to significant challenges in managing flow rates discharging over spillways, resulting in cavitation damage on hydraulic surfaces. To address this, aerator devices were designed and installed to promote fore aeration, thereby controlling and mitigating damages caused by cavitation. Consequently, these aerator types, three-dimensional aerators with lateral enlargement (3DAEs), have demonstrated superior efficiency in introducing forced air into the flow and mitigating the bottom and side cavitation.
