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

    About the Author: RAJNIKANT M. KHATSURIA served as Additional Director, Central Water and Power Research Station, Pune, India, until his retirement in 2001. He joined the Central Water and Power Research Station in 1963 and was engaged in the research and design of hydraulic structures, based on hydraulic model studies. His special interests include spillways, energy dissipators, control and conveyance structures, and hydropower structures. He has completed nearly 150 projects pertaining to the above disciplines and has authored a number of technical papers and professional reports. He contributed towards the field standardization of overflow, non-overflow, and hydropower structures. He also served as the Senior Expert for WAPCOS (India) Ltd. (1989-90) for the planning and commissioning of the HLAB (hydraulics laboratory) at Al Taji, Baghdad, Iraq. He received the B.E. (1963) degree from Gujarat University, India, the M.E. (1975) degree from the University of Pune, India, and the M.S. (1981) degree from the University of Iowa, Iowa City.
