Abstract:

This report presents the results of hydraulic model tests for low drop grade control structures. The results are presented in dimensionless relationships. Tentative design criteria are formulated for the design of low drop grade control structures with baffle energy dissipation devices. A method is given to determine the size of the stilling basin and the size and placement of a baffle pier or baffle plate in the basin to achieve optimum flow conditions in the downstream channel.
