Description: Technical memorandum
General: This memorandum constitutes the final report on the model study performed at the U. S. Waterways Experiment Station of the spillway for the Denison Dam, Red River. The general purpose of the study was to investigate the hydraulic capacity of the spillway, to improve flow characteristics, and to develop means of correcting any uneconomic or undesirable conditions found to exist in the spillway de sign. All tests were conducted on a model built to the linear-scale ratio, model to prototype, of 1 to 80. Reproduced in the model were 2500 ft of the approach area, a portion of the earth embankment, the spillway proper, the stilling basin, the exit channel, and about 2500 ft of Shawnee Creek (the stream into which the exit channel discharges).
