Wetlands investigations on Akers Ranch in Big Valley, California by Dana R Sanders( Book )

5 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study, conducted for the US Army Engineer District, Sacramento (SPL), involved delineation and evaluation of wetlands, a survey of previous farming activities, and assessment of impacts of a proposed land development plan on the Robert W. Akers ranch near Bieber in northeastern California. Results of the study were used by SPK to support litigation in which the property owner allegedly violated provision of Section 404 of the Clean Water Act of 1977. The first task was to delineate natural wetlands occurring on the 9,600-acre ranch. A combination of transects and perimeter wetland boundary sampling was used. Vegetation, soil, and hydrology parameters were examined at prescribed locations, and the area at a sample point was considered to be a wetland if a positive wetland indicator was found for each of the three parameters. Task II consisted of an assessment of the functions and values of the natural wetlands. Field observations, hydrologic analyses, and published reports were provided as input to the Federal Highway Administration wetlands. assessment technique that consideres all known wetlands functions. Task III involved a survey of previous farming activities on the property. Task Iv consisted of an assessment of the impacts of a proposed land development plan. The assessment revealed that the proposed activities would result in the destruction of vertually all wetlands on the property, and all functions currently provided by the wetlands would be lost

Walnut Creek channel improvement project, Contra Costa County, California : hydraulic model investigation by John F George( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tests were conducted on a 1:25-scale model of the existing covered channels in the city of Walnut Creek where Las Trampas Creek and San Ramon Creek join to form Walnut Creek. The purpose of the model investigation was to determine the capabity of the existing flood-control channel system and methods for increasing the capacity and improving the flow characteristics in the channels. The model reproduced approximately 818 ft of Walnut Creek, 2,264 ft of San Ramon Creek, and 1,492 ft of Las Trampas Creek, and was constructed so that the slopes of the channels could be adjusted to reproduce various energy gradients that would result from roughness values different than those anticipated. The slopes of the model were initially adjusted to produce an energy gradient resulting from a Manning's roughness factor n of 0.012 in the prototype. The maximum discharge capacities were determined to be as follows: Las Trampas Creek, 11,000 cfs (100-year frequency flow); San Ramon Creek, 17,400 cfs (2,200 cfs more than the 100-year frequency flow); Walnut Creek conduit, 24,000 cfs. A soffit installed on the bottom of the T-beams on the roof of Walnut Creek increased its capacity to 27,500 cfs
Fixed-cone valves, New Melones Dam, California : hydraulic model investigation by Stephen T Maynord( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This model study was conducted with the major emphasis on determining the differential pressures acting on the vanes of the valves. Pressures were measured along the vane, and the differential acting across the vane was used in a structural analysis. Flow entering the 66-in.-diam valves in the low-level outlet works was highly distorted by the combined bends located just upstream of the valves. The upstream bifurcations in the flood control and irrigation outlet system caused substantial fluctuation of flow entering the 78-in.-diam valves. Discharge characteristics of the valves showed that the eight-vaned valves (without the center connecting hub design) used in the New Melones Dam outlet works have discharge coefficients slightly higher than conventional four- and six-vaned valves with center connecting hub. Approach conduit pressures were measured at all potential low pressure zones and no low pressures were measured. The original hood design was modified to reduce backsplash on the valves. In the low-level outlet works, the backsplash plate was moved downstream 4 ft from the original location and backsplash was substantially reduced. In the flood control and irrigation outlet system a divergent cone was used in lieu of the plate to reduce backsplash. Results of the study are considered valid for use in designing against fatigue failure of the vanes. Although frequency spectra determined that predominant frequencies were low, the possibility of a resonant failure cannot be ruled out
Fixed-cone valve prototype tests, New Melones Dam, California by Timothy L Fagerburg( Book )

4 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report presents the results of tests conducted subsequent to those discussed in US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station Technical Report HL-83-2 dated February 1983. The purpose of the tests was to obtain data at a higher pool elevation to: (a) determine the dynamic response of the 78-in.-diam fixed-cone valve and 18-ft-diam hood, (b) determine the probability of valve fatigue-type failure under prolonged operation, and (c) compare results with those of the earlier (basic) tests and model tests. Results of the data reduction include information on discharge characteristics of the fixed-cone valve, evaluations of pressure fluctuations in the valve and hood, vibration responses of the valve and hood, and strain measurements on the valve test vane. The acceleration data revealed no significant changes due to the increase in pool elevation. Mean pressure values in the valve and hood increased as a result of the increase in total head, No negative pressures were recorded. Imposed limitation of the total sleeve travel to a maximum of 28.1 in. prevented the occurrence of a flow control shift
Flood control and irrigation outlet works and tailrace channel for New Melones Dam, Stanislaus River, California : hydraulic model investigation by Stephen T Maynord( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This model study was conducted to develop measures to stabilize the tailrace channel. During the initial operation of the prototype FC & I outlet works, flows at a relatively low pool elevation resulted in failure of the 4-ft-diam derrick stone on the opposite bank. Several alternatives were tested in the 1:24-scale model. The recommended design consisted of the addition of deflector plates to the 18-ft-diam hoods and baffle blocks and an end sill added to the existing concrete chute and impingement pad. This design resulted in good energy disipation at all flows. The loadings exerted on the baffle blocks and end sill were measured in the 1:24-scale model. The loadings and pressures exerted on the deflector plates were measured in a 1:12-scale model. These loadings were used in the structural design of the elements of the recommended design. Although low-pressure zones were found in the deflector plate design, the high level of aeration that occurs when fixed-cone valves discharge into freely aerated hoods should reduce the potential for cavitation damage. Aeration of flow within the hoods was supplemented by air vents located between the deflector plates
