Kathy Frizell. 2004. "Hydraulic Performance of a Horizontal Flat-Plate Screen". Bureau of Reclamation, Report Number HL-2004-05.

Abstract: Reclamation has interest in using the horizontal flat-plate screen technology at several irrigation diversions. This study investigated the hydraulic and biological performance of the experimental screening technology. The hydraulic investigation included physical modeling of various screen geometries and evaluation of the screen sweeping and approach velocities under several different diversion to channel discharge ratios. Recommendations were made to improve the hydraulic performance and a spreadsheet was developed to aid in screen design. Performance of bull trout passing the screen was also documented.
