Abstract:

Tests were conducted on a 136-scale model of the Columbus Lock and Dam spillway to determine discharge characteristics of the spillway, stilling basin performance, and riprap requirements downstream from the structure for both normal and single-gate operations. The proposed spillway will consist of five 60-ft-wide bays through which flow will be regulated by tainter gates.
