Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering

Abstract: The North Diversion Structure diverts storm runoff around Albuquerque, New Mexico. Observed flow conditions have caused concern about the capacity of the structure and the safety of a railroad bridge that crosses the structure. A physical model study was conducted to assess the flow conditions in the vicinity of the Alameda Outlet Structure and to determine modifications to correct unacceptable flow conditions. Several modifications were designed that improved the capacity and safety of the structure.
