Abstract:

Two separate physical hydraulic model investigations concerning the proposed Burlington flood-control project are reported herein. The first investigation used a 180-scale general model of the spillway and outlet works with stilling basins and common embankment to verify the adequacy of design and to develop necessary modifications. The second study used a 125-scale outlet works model to allow detailed evaluation and modification of various outlet works components. Significant modifications were made to both the spillway and outlet works during these investigations to improve approach flows, improve spillway efficiency, and eliminate a vortex during combined spillway and outlet works operation.
