Description: Technical report
Tests were conducted on a 1:36 scale model of a portion of the Guadalupe River. The study was designed to investigate the design of a control weir located at the upstream end of a bypass channel. The bypass channel was designed to pass excess flow and prevent flooding for river flows up to a 100-year event. The original weir design was modified to achieve desired flow distribution and control.
