Erosion Protection at Hydraulic Structures: A Report From the Task Committee
In 1991 the ASCE Hydraulics Structures Committee formed a task committee on Erosion Protection at Hydraulic Structures. The purpose of the committee is to determine current practices in...

n Values for Shallow Flow in Rough Channels
Manning's friction factor n has been developed from flume data for very shallow open channel flow in a high-gradient channel with large bed material. n values are presented as a function...

Problems with Numerical Modeling of Gravel-Bed Rivers
Inherent to one-dimensional numerical models are the assumptions that hydraulic parameters can be assigned a characteristic average value, and that the flow is gradually varied so that...

Calibration of Manning's Roughness for a River Reach
The Albuquerque Projects Office of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation collected water surface elevations for measured discharges for the Rio Grande and many of its tributaries to try to obtain...

Hydrodynamic Modeling for Channel Barrier Design
A two-dimensional vertically-averaged finite element hydrodynamic model was used at two scales to predict flow conditions for design of a proposed fish barrier: one for the general hydraulic...

A 2-D Numerical Model for High Velocity Channels
The hydraulic performance of a high velocity channel depends on maintaining a supercritical flow regime over specified portions of its length. Predicting the potential location of shocks...

Multi Objective Detention Outlet Control Structure
Increasing numbers of stormwater management ponds are being included in the design of urban and rural drainage projects. This is in part due to the environmental outcry to clean up our...

Velocity Downstream of a Submerged Pipe Outlet
The velocity downstream of a submerged pipe outlet was examined in time and space. A model study was performed to examine the influence of boundary roughness changes on the velocity dissipation....

Pressure Relief Under Hydraulic Jump Stilling Basins
Gravity drainage cannot be used for any portion of a structure located below tailwater level. Yet, drainage of this area may be required to relieve sub-floor pressures and reduce the risk...

General Implicit Representation of Hydraulic Structures in Numerical Flow Models
Effects of hydraulic structures (such as culverts, bridge openings, or gates) can be simulated in numerical surface-water-flow models. Generally the scale and dimension of the numerical...

Low-Flow Habitat in Flood Control Channels
A critical phase in the life cycle of many riverine species in flood control channels is during low-flow periods when the quantity and quality of available habitat diminishes. However,...

Scour at Highway Structures in Tidal Waters
Scour analysis of bridges over tidal waterways uses the same scour equations as for the rivers. However, determining the hydraulic variables to use in the equations is complex. A major...

The analysis of bridge hydraulics and scour potential in tidal waters, in comparison with inland rivers, requires consideration of various additional factors. This paper condenses a simplistic...

A Tidal Inlet Bridge Scour Assessment Model
Undermining of bridge structures constructed in tidal inlets is a common problem. Scour mechanisms in tidal inlets are often complex combinations of local contraction and regional tidal...

Two-Dimensional Hydrodynamic Modeling with a Computer Graphics System
For more than a decade various divisions and district offices of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have been active in the development of graphic information system databases and computer...

Use of Floodplain PCB Concentrations to Calibrate a River Hydraulics Model
A river floodplain was found to contain measurable quantities of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), presumably deposited during historic flood events. A hydraulic model (HEC-2) was used...

Hydraulic Modeling of Fish Screens
Hydraulic model studies coupled with available knowledge of fish behavior can be important component in the development of fish-screening systems. To reproduce in a model the flow field...

Fish Screen Developments, Columbia River Dams
This paper describes developments to date for a fish diversion and bypass system being tested for two Columbia River dams. Because of the concern for the negative impacts of screen systems...

Hydraulic Aspects of a Low-Velocity, Inclined Fish Screen
The Potter Valley Hydroelectric Project diverts up to 310 cfs from Van Arsdale Reservoir on the Eel River in north-central California and delivers it to Potter Valley for power production...

Survival of Atlantic Salmon Smolts Bypassed Through Ice-Log Sluices Determined by the HI-Z Turb'N Tag
The HI-Z Turb'N Tag was used to assess injury and mortality incurred by Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar) smolts bypassed through ice-log sluiceways at two stations. Both sluiceways were similar...
