Physical River Model Results and Prototype Response
The Hydraulics Laboratory of the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) has performed physical hydraulic model studies on various rivers for nearly 60 years. These studies...

Modeling of a Low Head Hydroelectric Project
In order to shorten the time to develop a hydroelectric project at the Corps of Engineers Hannibal Lock and Dam on the Ohio River for the City of New Martinsville, West Virginia, a turnkey...

Three-Dimensional Modeling of a Stratified Estuary
Development around Choctawhatchee Bay, and reduced productivity, loss of seagrass beds, and higher salinities, prompted the Northwest Florida Water Management District to conduct an investigation...

Studies of Hydraulic Jump by the Flow Routing
The high energy of floodwater passing from a reservoir needs to be dissipated to prevent scouring and damage from the dam and other downstream structures. Hydraulic jump is a common way...

Physical Model of Local Scour at Grade Control Structures
A physical model of local scour occurring at grade-control structures was operated at an undistorted Froude number prototype-model scale ratio of 1:4. The maximum unit discharge in the...

Model-Prototype Correlation of Hydraulic Structures
Forty-three papers are contained in these proceedings, from the International Symposium on Model-Prototype Correlation of Hydraulic Structures. The papers cover a broad range of subjects...

Nonlinear Behavior of Tanks Under Axisymmetric Excitation

The Design of Pocket Beaches Using a Physical Model

Design of Breakwaters for Hurricane Wave Attack
The breakwaters protecting Port of Haina in the Dominican Republic have been repeatedly damaged by hurricane storm waves. Attempt to repair the destroyed portions have been largely unsuccessful....

Predictions of Shoaling Rates for a New Harbor in Puget Sound, Washington
Physical and numerical modeling methods were used to predict shoaling rates in the proposed Naval Station Puget Sound, Washington. A simple analytical model (SILTHAR), based on the premise...

Numerical Modeling of Estuarine Training Structure Effects on Navigation Channel Performance
A two-dimensional, vertically averaged, numerical modeling technique is presented to analyze estuarine training structure performance. The technique consists of using the US Army Corps...

Modeling Applications in Coastal Engineering
This paper discusses physical and numerical models of coastal processes as applied to coastal and ocean engineering projects. Some of the concepts and principles of modelling are identified...

Barbers Point, Oahu, Hawaii Deep Draft Harbor Monitoring Program
The deep draft harbor at Barbers Point, Oahu, Hawaii is located on the south side of the island. The 92 acre harbor basin is a product of over 25 years of planning and engineering. The...

Physical Modeling of Contracted Flow
Experiments on steady flow over uniform grass roughness through centered single-opening contractions were conducted in the Flood Plain Simulation Facility at the U. S. Geological Survey's...

Density Currents in Clarifiers
This paper discusses internal flow regimes associated with the density currents due to diurnal heat loading. The reported studies were carried out with the aid of physical models....

Salinity Intrusion Predictions by Analytical Expressions
Salinity intrusion in estuaries has traditionally been predicted by use of physical models and more recently by numerical models. Analytic techniques have seen quite limited use because...

Low Head Dam Safety Studied with Hydraulic Models
Use of physical models to study the hydraulic jump or submerged roller action created as water overflows low head dams provides an opportunity to develop design criteria for various structure...

Advanced Concept for Generation of Waves in Hydraulic Models
This paper describes a new wavemaker for the generation of naturally occurring waves in physical models of coastal areas. Recent research incorporating directional aspects of monochromatic,...

Physical Modeling to Study the Extent of Removal of an Existing Lock and Dam on the Mississippi River
Locks and Dam No. 26 is located on the Mississippi River approximately 202. 9 river miles above the mouth of the Ohio River. This paper will discuss the utilization of a physical model...
