Thermal-Hydraulic Study: Arkansas Cooling Reservoir
An 850-Mw nuclear power plant to be built by Arkansas Power and Light Company on the Dardanelle Reservoir on the Arkansas River will utilize reservoir water for condenser cooling. Analysis...

Advantages of Inclined-Axis Hydroelectric Units
The Corps of Engineers selected a relatively new type of low-head hydroelectric unit for installation at three multi-purpose projects now under construction. These units are known variously...

Hydrologic Response of Watersheds to Land Use Management
Some potentials for influencing streamflow by land used management on three ARS research watersheds at Coshocton, OH; Hastings, NE; and Riesel, TX, were explored through applications of...

Control of Natural Chloride, Arkansas-Red Rivers
Natural mineral pollution si rendering water unusable in portions of the Arkansas and Red River Basins. Stream flows are high in chloride because of brine springs and seeps emitting directly...

Pile Tests—Arkansas River Project
Field driving and loading tests were made on a variety of piles driven with different hammers to develop criteria for the design and construction of pile foundations in sand for locks...

Lateral Load Tests on Piles—Arkansas River Project
Field lateral load tests were made on a variety of piles driven with different hammers to develop criteria for the design and construction of pile foundations in sand for locks and dams...

Model Study of Laterally Loaded Piles
Tests on scaled models of the locks and dams used in the Arkansas River Navigation Project were performed to develop design criteria for pile foundations in sand. The relationships between...

Chloride Control - Arkansas and Red River Basin
Natural brine emissions are found to be the principal cause of water quality degradation in the Arkansas and Red River Basins. The methods used to identify the brine emission sources are...

Land Modification for Efficient Use of Water
For any water management practice to function efficiently, the surface of the land must be properly prepared. The following methods are considered: land grading for surface drainage in...

Homestake Train-Divide Water Supply Project
The project diverts water from the Colorado western slopes of the Continental Divide to the cities of Aurora and Colorado Springs on the eastern slopes. Average annual delivery is 70,800...

Laboratory Contributions to Channel Stabilization
Hydraulic model studies for investigation of channel stabilization problems on the Mississippi, Ohio, Middle Rio Grande, and Arkansas Rivers are summarized. Most of the studies were conducted...

Pumping Test to Determine Permeability Ratio
Field pumping tests on fully and partially penetrating wells in the alluvial valley of the lower Arkansas River indicate a ratio of horizontal to vertical permeability of approximately...

Electronic Computers in Watershed Research
Electronic computers have been found to be useful to the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) in carrying out soil and water research—both in the processing of raw data and in the analysis...

Hydraulic Aspects of Arkansas River Stabilization
Hydraulic aspects of stabilization and rectification of the Arkansas River in Arkansas are examined, such as variability of streamflow, the large natural sediment load and severe curtailment...

Channel Stabilization on the Arkansas River
Reach of river from Wilsons Rock, Okla, to Fort Smith, Ark, was selected as prototype test reach in which various types of structures would be installed to establish stable channel suitable...
