Este trabajo involucra el razonamiento y la experiencia de diversos investigadores, y establece criterios técnicos útiles para el dimensionamiento inicial de obras de toma de presas mediante el uso de galerías para la conducción del agua que funcionan bajo régimen de circulación libre. La mayor parte de los criterios presentados son producto de los resultados obtenidos en la república de Cuba durante el diseño, construcción y operación de numerosas obras hidráulicas de mediana y pequeña magnitud. Además, se incluyen expresiones matemáticas que ahorran trabajo al diseñador y facilitan el cálculo del diseño final.

Palabras clave: criterios, experiencias, obras de toma, dimensionamiento inicial, presas, galerías con circulación libre, diseño, expresiones matemáticas.

Criteria for the initial sizing of dam outlet works with gallery and free circulation.

This paper involves the reasoning and experience of several investigators, establishes technical criteria to use in the initial sizing of dam outlet works, using galleries for the conduction of water under the regime of free circulation. Most of the criteria presented are the product of experiences obtained in the Republic of Cuba during the design, construction, and operation of numerous medium –and small– sized hydraulic works. In addition, mathematical expressions that save work to the designer and facilitate the calculation of the final design are included.

Keywords: criteria, experiences, dam outlet works, initial sizing, dams, galleries with free circulation, design, mathematical expressions.
