Ogee spillways are used to monitor reservoir releases. Ogee spillway is a weir with an ogee (S-shaped) overflow profile. A curve solid surface provided at the toe of the spillway is known as a ski-jump bucket. Ski-jump bucket type energy dissipator is considered more suitable when tail water depth is much lower than the sequent depth of a hydraulic jump. In the ski-jump bucket, the flow coming down the spillway is thrown away in air from the toe to a considerable distance as a free discharging upturned jet (trajectory), which falls on the channel bed downstream. In the ski-jump bucket, only part of the energy is dissipated through interaction of the jet with the surrounding air. The remaining energy is accorded to the channel bed below. This paper describes the design of a Controlled ski -jump spillway model with guidelines in accordance with the IS Code.
