Abstract:
The goal of this project was to determine the performance of two types of stilling basins with varying tailwater elevation. The performance was evaluated in terms of scour at the toe of the stilling basin and containment of the jump in the basin. The investigation involved establishing the relationships for different flow rates, different velocities and depth of approach flow for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation stilling basins III and IV. It is well known that the Bureau of reclamation stilling basins perform satisfactorily for design tailwater conditions. It is not clear how much higher or lower the tailwater can be and still have marginally acceptable performance in the basin. This research sought to establish: (1) the behavior changes with high and low tailwater, and (2) the limiting range of tailwater for acceptable performance.
