Abstract:

The spillway for Kaw Dam, which is expected to be subjected to discharges as large as 616,200 cfs, was studied on a 1100-scale comprehensive model to determine flow conditions in the approach and exit channels and the performance of various elements of the structure. Modifications to the left abutment were recommended to provide a more economical design without inducing excessive turbulence, surging, andor drawdown in the gate bays adjacent to the left abutment. The capacity of the spillway as determined with the model was slightly less than computed. Modification of the left abutment did not alter the capacity. The designs of the right stilling basin training wall and the right tailrace training wall also were developed with the model. Author
