Surges in Southern Outfall Sewer and Flow Conditions in State Fairgrounds (Western Parkway) Pumping Plant, Louisville, Kentucky: Hydraulic Model Investigation

Description: Report of findings from various tests: "Model investigations of the surges occurring in sewer lines and of the flow conditions in a typical pumping plant, used to dispose of drainage during high river stages, were conducted as a part of the local flood protection project for Louisville, Kentucky. Studies conducted on a 1:32 scale simplified model of the Southern Outfall Sewer provided general information on the relative amount of relief from surges to be expected from the pumping station and manholes in the sewer line upstream" (p. v).

Weir Jetty Performance: Hydraulic and Sedimentary Considerations: Hydraulic Model Investigation

Description: Final report regarding studies of weir jetties as an alternative for jetty design at tidal inlets. "The hydraulic model investigation was performed to study important design parameters for a weir jetty system including weir length, elevation, orientation with respect to the shoreline and the conventional portion of the jetty structure, tidal currents over the weir section, flow patterns in the vicinity of the weir section, sediment movement over the weir and effects of the weir jetty on accretion, and erosion upcoast of the jetty system" (abstract, para. 2).

Mission Bay Harbor, California, Design for Wave and Surge Protection and Flood Control: Hydraulic Model Investigation

Description: Partial abstract: A 1:100-scale (undistorted) hydraulic model, reproducing Mission Bay Harbor, approximately 3 miles of shoreline, and sufficient offshore area to permit generation of the required test waves, was used to investigate the arrangement and design of proposed structures for (a) improving hazardous entrance conditions, (b) reducing surge inside the harbor, and (c) eliminating potential flood hazards. The original proposal for harbor improvement consisted of a 2,200-ft-long offshore breakwater. The proposed structures for river flood control consisted of (a) a 1,200-ft-long weir in the middle jetty, (b) various south jetty extensions, and (c) diversion dikes on the middle jetty.

Considered Lake Erie-Lake Ontario Waterway: Hydraulic Model Investigation

Description: Report describing the results of studies meant to provide "determination of the most functional and economical location for a lock in the vicinity of Buffalo, N. Y., and evaluation of navigation conditions at the entrance to an overland canal joining the American channel of the Niagara River northwest of North Tonawanda, N. Y." (p. ix).

Isabella Dam Spillway, Kern River, California: Hydraulic Model Investigation

Description: Abstract: "Tests were conducted on a 1:50-scale model of Isabella Dam Spillway to determine the adequacy of proposed spillway, dam, and channel improvements. The model reproduced an area of the reservoir 800 ft wide by 1,100 ft long, the spillway, and the entire length of the exit channel. Unsatisfactory flow conditions were observed in the vicinity of the spillway crest due to approach conditions to the spillway. Large cross waves, present in the exit channel just downstream of the spillway, resulted in occasional overtopping of the right wall. A grouted rock dike that provided satisfactory flow conditions at the spillway and downstream throughout the exit channel was placed adjacent to the existing spillway approach wall."

Flood Protection Plans for Cumberland, Maryland & Ridgeley, West Virginia: Hydraulic Model Investigation

Description: Report of a hydraulic model investigation "to determine the most economical method of providing protection for Cumberland and Ridgeley against floods somewhat greater than the flood of March 1936 Specifically, the model was used to determine: the proper sections and grades of channels required to pass the design flood with maximum reductions in flood stages; the minimum heights of levees and walls; and the channel treatment required at bridges to insure the safe passage of floodwaters with minimum alterations to the structures" (p. 4).
