This report presents the results of tests conducted on section models of the gated and fixed-crest spillways for Columbia Dam, a navigation structure proposed for construction on the Chattahoochee River. The models were constructed to undistorted scales of 127.2 gated spillway and 136 fixed-crest spillway. The original design provided stilling basins below each of the spillways, but model tests demonstrated the feasibility of eliminating energy-dissipating devices. Pressure measuremtnts on the sill of the gated spillway revealed no unusual conditions.
