This paper presents the results of an extensive laboratory study aimed at improving the design of Denil fishways. For the standard design of the simple Denil, an equation has been developed between the dimensionless discharge Q* and the relative depth of flow d/b for d/b as large as 5.5. The normalized velocity distributions in the centerplane of the Denil were found to have certain shapes depending upon the d/b ratio. For the nonstandard designs of the Denil fishway, based on the results of… CONTINUE READING
