Abstract:

Numerous studies have been performed to develop stilling basin designs for site-specific projects. The design that the Corps of Engineers uses for the low-head navigation dam stilling basin is a result of acquiring design guidance from many of these studies. This report provides the historical background and basis for adopting this design guidance as well as additional research performed to refine the low-head navigation dam stilling basin design. The hydraulic conditions for basin design are presented, and design guidance for the various basin elements including basin elevation and length, baffle block location, gate pier extensions, and end sill location are also provided.
