Embankment overflow stepped spillways have common features with stepped storm water systems and sabo channel systems (Photo No. 9), which differ significantly from concrete dam stepped spillways. Namely the channel has often a trapezoidal cross-section, the bed slope is moderate (i.e. less than 30 deg.) and the step height ranges from about 0 In addition to early stepped spillways that were built in masonry, some major concrete or unlined rock stepped spillways were built in the second half of the 20th century. Relevant examples include the Clywedog dam, UK, (concrete), the Dartmouth dam, Australia, (unlined rock), and La Grande 2 dam, Canada, (unlined rock).

It should be noted that more than one type of PMF can occur at a given dam site, such as rain-on-snow, thunderstorm, etc. (see figure ), which leads to an important concept: the critical :// 8 Most Common Types of Spillways (With Diagram) Article Shared by. Such a spillway is better suited for a thin arch dam whose downstream face is nearly vertical. The chute spillway is also suitable for concrete dams constructed in narrow valleys across a river whose bed is erodible for which ogee spillway becomes 2 days ago Possible failure modes in an arch dam are overturning, excessive abut- ment movement causing tension cracks in the concrete and subsequent rup- ture of the dam, mass movement of the abutments causing dam failure or disruptive stresses in the dam, and excessive uplift in the foundation that causes movement of rock blocks in the foundation and/or

Preference is given to placement of auxiliary spillways adjacent to and around the dam rather than over the dam. Auxiliary spillways may be unlined or lined.

Use of (RCC) roller-compacted concrete in dam construction provides the opportunity to build a stepped spillway right into the dam.
