Abstract

None supplied. From introduction: This monograph compares the performances of both the Heart Butte and Shadehill Dam morning glory spillway models with the performances of the prototype structures. The results of these comparisons add further proof to the premise that prototype performance can be predicted with accuracy from model tests. Brief discussions are given of the necessary hydraulic model tests conducted on the scale models to aid in the design of the structures and to obtain data useful in operating the prototype structures.
