in a tailrace.
When the tailwater depth is low, culverts on mild or horizontal slopes will flow with critical depth near the outlet.
Tailwater influenced formation of the scour hole and performance of the dissipator.
Individual polygon coverages were created for each reservoir and tailwater.
Tailwater also influences the amount of energy dissipated.
Tailwater control weirs offer an advantage over baffles in that they are located outside the culvert barrel.
As the tailwater level is slowly reduced, flow through the flume will increase but only up to a limiting value.
If the tailwater is recirculated, additional furrows should be irrigated in order to stretch limited water supplies.
