A plot of dimensionless submergence versus intake Froude number is presented for a number of vertical and horizontal intakes from both field and laboratory observations. The pilot is divided into two regions: a region where intake vortices are unlikely and a model study is not required except with extremely poor approach conditions, and a region with a good possibility of intake vortices, and a model study is recommended.
