Effective hydraulic modeling can often be done without sophisticated laboratory equipment and instrumentation, yet provide adequate design information in less time and at less cost than mathematical calculations. this is particularly true where, for some reason, a more-or-less standard design can not be used. The article uses the Green Lake Dam, which provides a hydropower reservoir in Maine, as a case study to illustrate the title subject. The spillway was rebuilt after the dam had been built, and hydraulic model studies were made to accomplish this.
