Abstract : The Trotters Shoals damsite is located on the Savannah River about 16 miles southeast of Elberton, Georgia. The model investigation was concerned with verification of satisfactory flow conditions in the approach channel, at the abutments, through the tainter gates, over the spillway, in the flip bucket energy dissipator and an alternate conventional stilling basin, and in the powerhouse tailrace and exit channel. The study was also conducted for the purpose of determining the magnitude and frequency of dynamic loads on the stilling basin walls induced by the hydraulic jump as well as the performance characteristics of the spillway and the energy dissipators.
