Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: Tests were conducted to determine (A.) the magnitude of vibrations occurring at the dam structure, Vista House, and sluice gate, (B.) gate-lip pressure fluctuations, (C.) airflow rates, and (D.) if correlation existed between the gate and Vista House vibrations. The measurements were made for a full range of gate openings at 1-ft increments from 1 through 10 ft with essentially full pool (799+ ft msl). Data reduction and analysis by WES indicated a frequency correlation of small magnitude between the gate-lip pressures and Vista House vibrations during test 17 (gate opening 9 ft). The measured air vent velocities and head losses were within the limits suggested by EM 1110-2-1602. The maximum air vent flow occurred when the sluice gate was fully open.
