Abstract : Tests were conducted on a 1:36-scale model of a portion of the proposed Beech Fork Lake and multilevel intake structure to determine the effects of the upstream topography and the geometry in the vicinity of the intake structure on the selective withdrawal capability of the structure. A 2500-ft-long by 1800-ft-wide area of the 40-ft-deep lake was modeled, and three alternative locations of the intake structure were investigated. Desnsity stratification caused by differentials in temperature in the prototype was simulated in the model by using saline and fresh water.
