Although hundreds of stilling basisns and energy-dissipating  devices have been designed in  conjunction  with  spillways,  outlet  works,  and  canal structures,  it  is  often  necessary  to  make  model studies  of  individual  structures  to  be  certain  that these will  operate  as anticipated.  The  reason for these repetitive  tests is that  a factor  of  uncertainty exists  regarding  the  overall  performance  characteristics  of  energy  dissipators. The many  laboratory  studies made on individual structures  over  a  period  of  years  have  been made by  different  personnel,  for  different  groups  of designers, each  structure  having  different  allow- able  design  limitations.  Since no  two  structures were  exactly  alike,  attempts  to  generalize  the assembled data  resulted  in  sketchy  and,  at  times, inconsistent  results  having  only  vague  connecting links.  Extensive  library  research  into  the  works of  others  revealed  the  fact  that  the  necessary correlation  facts are nonexistent.
