Hydraulic Design of Subsurface Flow Wetlands
Although Subsurface Flow Wetlands (SFW) have received steadily increasing international attention during the past 10 to 15 years, comprehensive design criteria are not available for some...

Overview of DoD Research in Groundwater Modeling
The U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station leads a multi-agency research program for the Department of Defense (DoD) which continues the development of integrated, comprehensive...

Hydrodynamic Changes Associated with Navigation Traffic on the Upper Mississippi River System
Research has been conducted at the Illinois State Water Survey for the last five to seven years to collect field data from the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers to determine the extent and...

Distributions of Return Flow in Navigable Waterways
Physical impacts of barge traffic on the riverine environment have drawn increasing attention from resource managers of the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS). Return flow, which can...

Improving the Speed of Double Lockages
The size of tug and barge combinations on the Upper Mississippi River and Illinois Waterway frequently exceed the dimensions of the lock chambers they must pass through. The locks on these...

Navigation Lock Improvements
All commercial barge traffic on the Upper Mississippi River and Illinois Waterway must pass through a system of locks designed and built in the 1930s and 40s. Many of the locks on these...

McAlpine Intake Model Study for Innovative Lock Design
The McAlpine Locks and Dam Project is located on the Ohio River near Louisville Kentucky. Construction of an additional 33.53-m-wide (110 ft) by 365.76-m-long (1200 ft) navigation lock...

Filling and Emptying System Model Study for the Innovative Lock Design
Funding constraints have generated innovative ideas regarding the hydraulic system of proposed navigation locks. Two fundamental questions addressed in the innovative lock design study...

Upper Mississippi River System Environmental Management Program (EMP)
Introduction The Upper Mississippi River Navigation System (UMRNS) is one of the largest Public Works projects existing within the continental United States of America. The system, which...

Environmental Restoration Measures on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway (TENN-TOM)
The Tenn-Tom, opened to navigation traffic in 1985, was designed and constructed to promote environmentally sustainable development. During the past ten years, the original measures have...

Sediment Deposition in the Navigation Approach Channel of Three Gorges Project
In this paper, a comparison is made between the problems of sediment deposition in the navigation approach channel of Gezhouba and Three Gorges Project. The investigation shows that the...

The Influence of Peak-Regulation of the Three Gorges Power Plant on Navigation
The paper studies the unsteady flow resulted from peak-regulation by daily regulation at both Three Gorges and Gezhouba Power Plants and concludes that the river section between the dam...

Sedimentation Dynamics of Tidal Inlets
Tidal inlets are very dynamic systems subject to continuous morphological changes under the action of tides, waves and transported sediments. Although flow and sediment dynamics are interactive,...
