Abstract: Six different outlet modification designs for the Old River Overbank Control Structure were evaluated. Model tests were conducted on five of the designs and design variations. A 1:24-scale section model was used to simulate discharges up to 550,000 cfs. Type 5 outlet modification design, utilizing gabions placed parallel to the flow on a 1V on 10H slope, was deemed the best of the six designs tested. Recommendations were also made to increase gabion effectiveness by improved construction and placement methods.
