Abstract: Models of St. Lawrence Seaway locks were constructed to scale of 1 to 24.24, model to prototype; vortical activity over intake ports and turbulence in lock chamber and lower approach were reduced to acceptable proportions; culvert and gate pressures, emergency gate and tainter valve operating loads, and hawser forces were measured; prototype operation procedures were selected from results of model tests.
