Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Hydraulic Engineering
This paper documents part of a project which sought to characterize sediment transport in the Buffalo River as a contribution toward planning for dredging or in-place containment of the contaminated bed sediments. It extends earlier analysis in the following directions: i) more detailed consideration of the characteristics and behavior of the fine sediments of the river bed; ii) incorporation of fine sediment scour into HEC-6 program; and iii) longer-term transport simulation aimed at evaluating the viability of the bury-in-place option for managing contaminated sediments.
