English term or phrase:ogee spillway
Headwater pressures were computed using the full heights of water to headwater elevations over the projected height of the structures. Tailwater pressures were computed using full heights of water Co tailwater elevations for nonoverflow sections and at 60% of full value for cases where deep flow occurs over the ogee spillway, in accordance with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers EM 1110-2-2200 "Gravity Dam Design."

3.1.1 Vertedouros de Superfície
Vertedouro de superfície trata-se de uma estrutura de controle que comanda a descarga do reservatório. Estes vertedouros podem ser livres, isto é, não existe domínio sobre a descarga, a
água do reservatório ao atingir a cota da soleira livre vai verter, ou podem ser com comportas, onde é possível ter um controle sobre o escoamento, isto é, pode-se determinar qual a cota que a água do reservatório pode atingir e só a partir desta cota abrem-se as comportas, permitindo o escoamento. http://www.lume.ufrgs.br/bitstream/handle/10183/26027/000754...

Of the 286 planes, the majority, were simple moldings like common ogees , astragals, beads, hollows and rounds.
having a double continuous S-shaped curve.
From a high central half-round, the skirt descends along cyma or ogee curves to cusps that set off shallow arches with small half-rounds in the middle.
