Electrical model of proposed sea level Panama Canal was constructed and measurements of tidal elevations and discharges were made at midpoint and 2 ends of canal; mean velocities were computed and comparisons were made with results of hydraulic model studies; utilization of nonlinear elements in analog to obtain accurate descriptions of wave forms.
