Computer Modeling of Reservoir Sedimentation and Sluicing
A recently developed computer program which simulates the evolution, growth, and movement of a submerged delta in reservoirs was tested for Spencer Dam and Reservoir in Nebraska. The code,...

Unique Problems in Modeling Irrigation Canals
Irrigation-canal modeling is based on the same unsteady flow equations used for river modeling. However the canal and irrigation environment present several unique simulation problems...

Standardization of Culvert Flow Computations
Culvert flow computations are generally computed by the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) nemographs or its HY8 computer program, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers'...

Submerged Vane Projects for Bank Stabilization and Sedimentation Management
Submerged vanes are small flow training devices placed in a stream to eliminate or create secondary currents to direct sediment in a controlled fashion. In recent years submerged vanes...

Temperature Rise, Bank Erosion, and Jet Velocity Effects of Submerged Multiport Diffusers in an Estuary
Temperature distributions, potential bank erosion, and jet velocity and trajectory of submerged multiport diffusers were predicted as part of the permitting process for an fossil fuel...

Improved Intake Design for Downstream Migrating Fish at Hydropower Plants
Fish guidance efficiency of screens is a function of the submergence of a hydropower intake. The submergence of an intake can be reduced through the use of intake extensions or guides...

Submarine Sand Ridges: Unique Marine Environment and Natural Resources
Submarine sand ridges are large scale depositional sandy bodies on the inner shallow water continental shelves, which are mostly distributed in the macro tide area where the mobile sandy...

Sediment Management with Submerged Vanes
Submerged vanes are small river training structures used for protection of streambanks against erosion and for amelioration of shoaling problems in navigation channels, at water intakes,...

Aeration of a Submerged Jet-Flow Gate
Submerged operation of a jet-flow gate requires special treatment of the area downstream from the gate to avoid cavitation damage. The Bureau of Reclamation studied operation of a submerged...

Evaluation of the ARS Low Drop Grade Control Structure
The ARS low drop grade control structure was developed by Little and Murphy to provide efficient energy dissipation and effective grade control for streams in northern Mississippi. The...

Simple Water Measuring Device for On Farm Irrigation Evaluation
Laboratory experiments were conducted for the calibration of three flumes of different sizes. The logarithmic transformation in linear regression yielded excellent results for the stage-discharge...

New Wharf Covers Trident Submarines
The U.S. Navy's newer fleet of Trident-class submarines requires upgraded support facilities. Work has continued on expanding the base at Kings Bay, Georgia. The explosive...

Hydro Turbine Submergence
The elevation of a hydro-electric turbine above or below tailwater is based on hydraulic model studies to determine the critical sigma, defined as the ratio of barometric pressure plus...

New Covered Drydock for Trident Submarines

Dredging Overview for Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base

Risk Assessment of Lake Shore Development of Devils Lake, North Dakota
In recent years, the advent of the flood insurance programs has forced developers, financiers, and planners to deal with future high water conditions and associated risks. A reliable method...

Submerged Flow in Parshall Flumes
Recent data collected in a 1-foot Parshall flume located in the Bureau of Reclamation's hydraulic laboratory indicate a significant discontinuity in the discharge/submergence...
