Utilization of hydraulic models to investigate navigation conditions, arrangements of locks and dams and appurtenant structures, and operation of dam gates; as indicated by model studies old movable-wicket dams, with sills at river bed elevation are being replaced by smaller number of high gated dams which will create deeper and longer pools; each pool will have main lock 110×1200 ft and 110×600 ft auxiliary lock.
