Abstract : West Point Dam spillway was studied on a 1:60-scale comprehensive model and a 1:60-scale section model to determine flow conditions in the approach channel and performance of various elements of the structure. Three alternate basin designs were investigated, a slotted roller bucket and two apron-type basins utilizing one row of baffle piers and an end sill. (Author)
