Spillway: Structural component of the dam that evacuates

flood wave from reservoir to river at the downstream.

Is safety valve of the dam

DESIGN RETURN PERIOD

From 100 yrs for diversion weir to 15,000 yrs or more

(Probable Maximum Flood-PMF) for earth-fill dams

TYPES OF SPILLWAYS

More common types are:

(1) Overflow (Ogee crested)

(2) Chute

(3) Side Channel

(4) Shaft

(5) Siphon

1) OVERFLOW SPILLWAYS

Allows the passage of flood wave over its crest

Used on often concrete gravity, arch and buttress dams

Constructed as a separate reinforced concrete structure

at one side of the fill-typed dams

Classified as uncontrolled (ungated) and controlled (gated)

Most of the spillways are overflow types

They have large capacities

They have higher hydraulic conformities

They can use successfully for all types of dams

A-Design Discharge of Spillway

Design discharge of an overflow spillway can be

determined by integrating velocity distribution over the

cross-sectional flow area on the spillway from the crest to

the free surface.

CREST GATES

Provide additional storage above the crest

See Fig. 4.11 for Primitive types of gates.

See Fig. 4.11 for Underflow gates.

Common types: radial and rolling

CREST PROFILES

conditions for a vertical upstream face is recommended by

Origin of Coordinates

altunkaynak.net

The values of K and n in the parabolic relation given in

Fig. 4.12 can be determined from Figure 4.13.

The pressure distribution on the bottom of the spillway face

depends on

The smoothness of the crest profile.

The upstream face of the crest is formed by smooth curves

in order to minimize the separation

For a smooth spillway face, the velocity head loss over the

spillway can be ignored.

Important Note:

altunkaynak.net

If H (head) > H

o

p < p

atm.

overflowing water

may lose contact with the spillway face, which

results in the formation of a vacuum at the point of

separation and CAVITATION may occur.

In order to prevent cavitation, sets sets of

ramps are placed on the face of overflow spillways

so that the jet leaves the contact with the surface.

Energy Dissipation at the Toe of Overflow Spillway

Excessive turbulent energy at the toe of an overflow spillway

can be dissipated by a hydraulic jump, which is a phenomenon

caused by the change in the stream regime from supercritical

to subcritical with considerable energy dissipation.

Sequent depth of the hydraulic jump, y

can be determined

from the momentum equation between sections (1) and (2).

Ignoring the friction between these sections, the momentum

equation for a rectangular basin can be written as

with

altunkaynak.net

and after simplification

and

F

r1

is the flow Froude number at section (1).

Where

The energy loss through the hydraulic jump in a rectangular basin

is computed from

altunkaynak.net

Case 1:

If the tailwater depth, y

, is coincident with the

sequent depth, y

2

, the hydraulic jump forms just at

toe of the spillway as shown in Figure below

altunkaynak.net

Case 2:

If the tailwater depth is less than the required sequent depth,

the jump moves toward the downstream, as can be seen from

Figure below.

This case should be eliminated, because water flows at a very

high velocity having a destructive effect on the apron.
