Results of model and prototype tests of hydraulic performance of new type of stilling basin which utilizes hollow jet valve for discharge control; determination of dimensions of basin for usual combinations of valve size, operating head, and discharge; prototype tests on Boysen and Falcon Dam stilling basins are described; new calculation methods, using dimensionless curves, are in good agreement with test results.
