Slotted roller bucket for use as submerged energy dissipator is developed from hydraulic model tests and is compared with solid-type bucket; charts are presented for hydraulic design of slotted bucket for various combinations of discharge, height of fall, and tail water range; bucket is shown to be particularly suited to installations where tail water is too deep for hydraulic jump.
