Tests were conducted on a 125-scale model of the outlet works for Warm Springs Dam to determine stilling basin performance and flow conditions in the outlet channel. Uncertainties existed as to the performance of the stilling basin, designed for full pipe flow, with the conduit flowing partially full since the curvature in the conduit could result in unequal distribution of flow at the outlet portal. The model reproduced the control structure, the entire length of the downstream conduit, the energy dissipator with fish channel, exit channel, and a portion of Dry Creek. Author Modified Abstract
