Model Study of Potential Debris Problems at the Proposed Diversion of Clover Fork River, Harlan, Kentucky

by Sandra K. Martin, US Army Engineer Waterways, Experiment Station, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering


A study was conducted at the Waterways Experiment Station in Vicksburg, Mississippi, using a physical and a numerical model, to evaluate the entrance conditions at a proposed tunnel diversion project. The primary objective of the model study was to minimize head losses due to floating debris at the tunnel entrance, by recommending modifications to the channel approach geometry, the tunnel pier shape, and/or the portal face.
