Abstract: The concrete gravity ogee spillway for the Lake Darling Dam will contain five 22-ft high by 43-ft-wide gate bays separated by 10-ft-wide piers. Outlet works consisting of four sluices within the piers will discharge into the spillway stilling basin. A hydraulic-jump-type stilling basin will provide satisfactory dissipation of the spillway and sluice flows. A 1:36-scale model of the spillway, sluices, stilling basin, approach area, and exit channel was used to study the overall hydraulic performance of the structure. Tests indicated that flow conditions in the approach to the spillway with both uncontrolled and controlled flows were satisfactory for the full range of anticipated discharges. Eddies developed on either side of the stilling basin. Constricting the channel flare to a uniform width eliminated the eddies. The size and extent of stone protection required on the dam embankment, side slopes and bottom of the approach channel, and side slopes and bottom of the exit channel were determined by model investigations.
