Topic: Drinking from a Firehose – Recent Observations in Dam Spillway Performance

Recent rainfall events in North and South Carolina have brought a renewed scrutiny to regional infrastructure issues.  In particular, hydraulic performance of dam spillways and other hydraulic structures have been pushed beyond their limits. The presentation will review infrastructure data related to dams and present historical elements that provide the background for a discussion of current spillway performance.  The presentation will review spillway examples and identify elements of spillway design that are critical to hydraulic performance.
