Description: Technical report
From the Synopsis : This memorandum constitutes a comprehensive report on the results of model studies conducted at the U. S. Waterways Experiment Station of the spillway and regulating sluices for the Wolf Creek Dam, Cumberland River, Kentucky. These studies were authorized bv the Chief of Engineers, U. S. Army, on 22 May 1941. The general purpose of the tests was to examine the hydraulic performance of the proposed control structures and to develop means for correcting any uneconomic, unsafe, or undesirable conditions found to exist. The studies involved the use of three undistorted scale models: (a.) a 1-to-40-scale section model of one central bay and two adjacent half bays of the spillway and bucket; (b.) a 1-to-15- scale model of one pair of regulating sluices; and (c.) a 1-to-100-scale comprehensive model of the spillway and a portion of the dam.
