Abstract : The document is the final report of model tests of the Big Muddy Subimpoundment Dam, Rend Lake Reservoir. The purpose of these tests was to provide data needed to plan reconstruction of the Big Muddy and Casey Fork subimpoundment dams. Tests were conducted to determine the size of riprap needed to insure stability of the crown and downstream slope of the Big Muddy and Casey Fork overflow embankments at the most severe flow conditions anticipated.
