Inlet is formed by cutting circular pipe at angle and placing pipe so that crown projects beyond invert; capacity and performance of spillway for variations of hood inlet length, conduit slope, wall thickness, and approach conditions are discussed; effect of vortices on spillway capacity is shown and anti-vortex devices are developed; scour in vicinity of hood inlet is determined for various sizes of stone; equations for scour-hole dimensions.
