Abstract : Investigations were conducted using 1:25-, 1:40-, and 1:50-scale section models to determine optimum gate sill and pier nose shapes, spillway capacity with full and partial gate openings for both free and submerged flows, stilling basin performance, and riprap requirements for a typical low-head navigation dam such as planned for construction on the Arkansas River.
