Discharge rating curves for vertical lift gates on spillway crests
U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station.
Miscellaneous paperPreface: This miscellaneous paper summarizes a study on discharge coefficients for vertical lift spillway crest gates. The study was made in connection with revision of the Engineer Manual, "Hydraulic Design of Spillways," EM 1110-2-1603, for the Office, Chief of Engineers by the Hydraulic Analysis Branch of the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station. The study was accomplished and this paper prepared by the Hydraulics Division of the U. S. Army Waterways Experiment Station, under the direction of Mr. E. P. Fortson, Jr., Chief of the Hydraulics Division and Mr. F. B. Campbell, Chief of the Hydraulic Analysis Branch. The procedure described in this paper was conceived and developed by Mr. R. H. Multer, Hydraulic Engineer, Analysis Section. The necessary computations and preparation of this paper were also accomplished by Mr. Multer under the supervision of Mr. R. G. Cox, Chief of the Analysis Section. Director of the Waterways Experiment Station, during the study and preparation and publication of this paper was Col. Alex G. Sutton, Jr., CE. Technical Director was Mr. J. B. Tiffany
