The tested models reproduce some small-scale morning-glory spillways of artificial reservoirs realized in the last few years. Every experimental apparatus shows differences both in the design criteria which govern the crest and the meridian profile of the spillways, and in the geometrical characteristics of the shaft and the transitional vertical curve between the former and the outlet tunnel. The difference between the spillway crest elevation and the bank level which defines real operating terms moving away from the results of ideal conditions experiments, have been finally considered.

Abstract

The tested models reproduce some small-scale morning-glory spillways of artificial reservoirs realized in the last few years. Every experimental apparatus shows differences both in the design criteria which govern the crest and the meridian profile of the spillways, and in the geometrical characteristics of the shaft and the transitional vertical curve between the former and the outlet tunnel. The difference between the spillway crest elevation and the bank level which defines real operating terms moving away from the results of ideal conditions experiments, have been finally considered.
