Abstract : Model studies of the stilling basin for Bluestone Dam, New River, West Virginia, were conducted at the Waterways Experiment Station in 1941-42 for the Huntington District, CE. The general purpose of the studies was to investigate the possibility and probable extent of destructive cavitation action on the Bluestone stilling-basin elements of original design, with the spillway in operation. It was also desired, if possible, to develop means of correcting any unsafe or undesirable conditions found to exist in the stilling basin as designed.
