Abstract
This work is a part of a larger study devoted to the understanding of the way a siphon works, in particular the final stage, in order to predict the true levels of the liquids in the tanks at the end of the liquid transfer. Experimental measurements (pressure, levels, velocities) during the transient flows in siphons were carried out and were compared with results obtained by using the computer code CATHARE. The liquid velocity profiles were measured by PIV technique which was the only available measurement technique for this kind of experiment. We show here that the computer curves closely follow the experimental curves during the priming and the liquid transfer stages but significantly move away during unpriming.
