Labyrinth and Piano Key Weirs

Sébastien Erpicum, Frédéric Laugier, Jean-Louis Boillat, Michel Pirotton, Bernard Reverchon, Anton J. Schleiss
June 28, 2017

Labyrinth spillways are almost as old as dam engineering. In spite of the fact that they appear as a very good technical-economical compromise, only 0.1% of large dams are equipped with such weirs. The main reason for this is that traditional labyrinth weirs usually cannot be installed on top of...
