Document Type: Journal Paper


Continuing the development in Paper 1402, this paper describes tests to generalize the design of a shorter stilling basin containing chute blocks, end sill, and one row of baffle piers. General design rules and sample problems are included. Critical basin dimensions, water surface profiles, and tail water ranges are presented in dimensionless forms.
