Optimization of Energy Dissipation Using Staggered Weirs

Energy dissipation at culvert outlets is necessary for preventing excessive scour that can result in damage to the outlet structure, adjacent roadway, or downstream channel. Energy dissipation basins have long been used for this purpose because of their simple design and effectiveness, but these basins take a lot of space and result in stagnant water pools. Improvements to dissipation structures can help reduce the size of these basins, which results in reduced project cost and helps eliminate stagnant pools.
