Flow Deflectors for Mitigation of Stilling Basin Abrasion Damage (final, PDF, 2.8MB)
By Leslie Hanna
Report completed on May 31, 2010

Model investigations were conducted by Reclamations Hydraulic Investigations and Laboratory Services group in Denver to develop standard guidelines for the design of flow deflectors to reduce or eliminate stilling basin abrasion damage. Abrasion damage has been a long-standing problem for stilling basins throughout Reclamation for many years and a number of studies have been conducted to try to understand the problem and to come up with cost effective solutions. In addition, field evaluations
