Description: Technical Report
Abstract: A design procedure for spillway crests has been developed that is applicable to a wide range of approach depths, upstream slopes, and heads on the crest. This report presents the results of systematic model tests of spillway crests designed using the procedure and covering a wide range of design conditions. Discharge coefficients, crest pressures, and water-surface profiles were determined both with and without piers on the crest.
