Abstract: Previous works of Moore, White, and Rand on the characteristics of the free overfall drop structures are briefly reviewed. A simple theory initially proposed by White is modified by introducing lesser drastic assumptions than the ones on which White's theory is based. The resulting theory is in closer agreement with experiment and the empirical equations of Rand than White's theory. Experimental results are also given on the brink depth as an appendix.
