dc.description.abstract
Model tests indicated that the formation of vortices was a potential problem at the spillway intake of the El Cajon project, Honduras. Different vortex prevention measures were tested on a 1:100 scale model for a maximum discharge of 1800m3/s. These measures included the introduction of and/or modification to the top grid, top barrier, protruding wall, vane walls and vortex tower. The best results in suppressing vortex formation were achieved with a vortex tower.
