Armorflex is an articulating concrete block erosion protection measure that has been used as an alternative to riprap for many years. Even though extensive research and hydraulic testing have been conducted on Armorflex, the principal constraint on the use of concrete blocks has been the lack of information on prototype performance. Furthermore, th...

The erosive power of a free-falling high-velocity water jet, flowing from a dam spillway, could create a scour hole downstream of the dam, endangering the foundation of the dam. Despite extensive research since the 1950s, there is presently no universally agreed method to predict accurately the equilibrium scour depth caused by plunging jets at dam...

The Berg River Dam is equipped with the first multi-level draw-off environmental flood release outlet in South Africa and can release flows up to about 200 m3/s. The outlet is controlled by a radial gate at the outlet end, and is protected by a vertical emergency gate near the inlet end. Commissioning tests of the emergency gate in 2008 found that...
