Prototype tests were conducted at Summersville Dam to determine the head losses caused by surface resistance and by the manifold trifurcation of the main tunnel into the discharge conduits. Discharge coefficients for various valve openings were also obtained. The findings were compared with existing data. Dissimilarities are believed to be largely due to the difficulty in obtaining a consistent piezometric grade line, necessitating the use of an average value. Author
