RMC Spillway Suite

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Risk Management Center (RMC) developed a set of toolboxes to help dam and levee safety risk assessors evaluate and screen spillway erosion.
RMC Critical Velocity Toolbox
 
RMC Headcut Erodibility Index Toolbox
 
RMC Erodibility Threshold Toolbox
 
RMC WinDAM Spillway Vegetation Parameters Toolbox

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Risk Management Center (RMC) developed the RMC Critical Velocity Toolbox as part of the RMC Spillway Erosion Suite of Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to support risk assessments for dam and levee safety. The spreadsheet tools contained in this toolbox assess the critical velocity. This parameter supports the screening of spillway erosion failure modes.

 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Risk Management Center (RMC) developed the RMC Headcut Erodibility Index Toolbox as part of the RMC Spillway Erosion Suite of Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to support risk assessments for dam and levee safety. The spreadsheet tools contained in this toolbox assess the headcut erodibility index using the methods of the U.S. Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). This parameter supports the screening of spillway erosion.

 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Risk Management Center (RMC) developed the RMC Erodibility Threshold Toolbox as part of the RMC Spillway Erosion Suite of Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to support risk assessments for dam and levee safety. The spreadsheet tools contained in this toolbox deterministically and probabilistically assess the likelihood of spillway erosion using the erodibility threshold method of Annandale (2006) and stream power considerations.

 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Risk Management Center (RMC) developed the RMC WinDAM Spillway Vegetation Parameters Toolbox as part of the RMC Spillway Erosion Suite of Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to support risk assessments for dam and levee safety. The spreadsheet tools contained in this toolbox assess the vegetation parameters for the WinDAM software. These parameters support the evaluation of spillway erosion.

This is the RMC Critical Velocity Toolbox version 1.0.

 

This is the RMC Headcut Erodibility Index Toolbox version 1.0.

  This is the RMC Erodibility Threshold Toolbox version 1.0.   This is the RMC WinDAM Spillway Vegetation Parameters Toolbox version 1.0.

RMC Erosion Susceptibility Toolbox
           

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Risk Management Center (RMC) developed the RMC Erosion Susceptibility Toolbox as part of the RMC Spillway Erosion Suite of Microsoft Excel spreadsheets to support risk assessments for dam safety. The spreadsheet tools contained in this toolbox assess the spillway erosion category erosion of Pells et al. (2017) using the geological strength index modified for erodibility and stream power considerations.
