An experimental study was carried out in order to investigate the hydraulic performance of a siphon shaft spillway with different sizes and positions of cylindrical hoods. The discharge coefficients and the pressure variations obtained through 600 experiments were evaluated and presented in tabular and dimensionless graphical forms for different hood positions and outlet now conditions.
