An unsurpassed treatise on the state-of-the-science in the research and design of spillways and energy dissipators, Hydraulics of Spillways and Energy Dissipators compiles a vast amount of information and advancements from recent conferences and congresses devoted to the subject. It highlights developments in theory and practice and emphasizing topics related to scale effect, dynamic flow measurement, and the analysis and interpretation of model results. Consolidates and compares the available information on various design approaches, procedures, and structure types to benefit practicing engineers. Reflecting the author's nearly four decades of experience in the field, this handbook: Provides four broad sections on spillway design, flood- estimation and selection, various types of spillways and energy dissipators, and topics of special interest + Offers valuable case studies and illustrative examples to effectively highlight key topics in the text + Includes chapters on crucial design elements such as cavitation, air entrainment, and aerators  + Contains extensive discussions of spillway construction stages, dual purpose spillways, overtopping protection of earth dams used as spillways, unlined spillways, fuse plugs and fuse gate spillways, air entrainment and forced aeration, and protection against detrimental forces such as cavitation, uplift, and scour.
