Abstract : The spillway will include a low weir with sloping upstream face and an ogee crest. The crest was designed for a head of 29 ft although heads up to 39 ft are expected. Tests were conducted in a 1:40-scale section model of the spillway to verify the adequacy of the proposed crest shapes with the upstream face of the weir on slopes of 3 on 2 and 3 on 3. Optimum pressure conditions and discharge coefficients were obtained with a crest shape which was tangent to the upstream face of the dam. (Author)
