Abstract:

This manual provides guidance for the hydraulic design of spillways for flood control or multipurpose dams. Procedures recommended are considered appropriate for structures suitable to most of the field conditions encountered in Corps of Engineer projects. Basic theory is presented as required to clarify presentation and where the state of the art, as found in standard textbooks, is limited. Both laboratory and prototype experimental test results have been correlated with current theory in the design guidance where possible.
