Abstract: The Jacksonville District, US Army Corps of Engineers, used the hydraulic design computer modeling program, WASURO, for preliminary design of the Rio Puerto Nuevo Flood Control System. The resulting design formed the basis for the Waterways Experiment Station (WES) physical model studies. A subsequent effort was made to verify the validity of WASURO as a design program. This paper presents a comparison of the numerical modeling and physical model test results.
