Abstract : The primary objectives of the experimental program was to determine whether pressure fluctuations induced on the face of a low-ogee spillway under various flow conditions are a possible mechanism for the excitation of spillway vibration. Some of the more important terms and concepts used to describe spillways will be defined at the outset in the interest of clarity. (Author)
