A fuse plug is a collapsible dam installed on spillways in dams to increase the dam's capacity. The principle behind the fuse plug is that the majority of water that overflows a dam's spillway can be safely dammed except in high flood conditions. The fuse plug may be a sand-filled container, a steel structure or a concrete block. Under normal. A spillway is a structure used to provide the controlled release of flows from a dam or levee into a downstream area, typically the riverbed of the dammed river itself. In the United Kingdom, they may be known as overflow ays ensure that the water does not overflow and damage or destroy the dam. Floodgates and fuse plugs may be designed into spillways to .

Auxiliary spillway with erodible embankment is good for this choice. Erodible embankment from constructional aspect is built both by homogeneous material and zoned materials with impervious core. When the lake level reaches design elevation, embankment is reached and is washed by controlled method and flood passes through auxiliary spillway.

The item Center Hill Fuseplug Spillway, Caney Fork River, Tennessee: hydraulic model investigation, by Bobby P. Fletcher and Paul A. Gilbert represents a specific, individual, material embodiment of a distinct intellectual or artistic creation found in Indiana State Library. NUMERICAL INVESTIGATION OF HYDRAULIC CHARACTERISTICS OF LALELI DAM SPILLWAY AND COMPARISON WITH PHYSICAL MODEL STUDY Usta, Eray M.S., Department of Civil Engineering Supervisor: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mete Köken May , 79 Pages Spillway is a hydraulic structure that is used to pass big discharges in flood times in a. Hydraulic Design Procedure • Assume given information – Total discharge, Q – spillway width, b – spillway height, H – spillway slope, q = º – select step height, h ( ft or ft) • Design Charts: – friction factor f = f (H, q) versus Nh/y c – bulking coefficient e = f (H,q) versus Nh/y c. Such a spillway is better suited for a thin arch dam whose downstream face is nearly vertical. Since the flow usually drops into the stream bed, objectionable scour may occur in some cases and a deep plunge pool may be formed. If erosion cannot be tolerated, a plunge pool is created by constructing an auxiliary dam downstream of the main dam.
