Abstract : Model tests were conducted on a 1:36-scale section model which reproduced one central gate bay and approximately half of each adjacent gate bay. Tests were conducted on spillways utilizing both submergible and nonsubmergible tainter gates. Tests were concerned with weir crest shape, discharge characteristics, gate radius and trunnion position, stilling basin performance, and riprap requirements downstream from the stilling basin.
