Sheldrake River Tunnel, Mamaroneck, New York : hydraulic model investigation by Charles H Tate( Book )

5 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is proposed to permanently divert the Sheldrake River, in southeast New York, from upstream of the confluence with the Mamroneck River through a concrete-lined tunnel into the West Basin of the Mamroneck Harbor. Included in the proposed plan are improvement of the existing channel, construction of an uncontrolled ogee drop structure and converging approach to at tunnel inlet portal, construction of 3,550 ft of concrete-lined tunnel, including a 16.25-ft-square section and a 17.5-ft horseshoe section with an intermediate transition, and construction of a standard stilling basin energy dissipator at the juncture with the West Basin. A 1:25-scale model was used to determine the flow conditions in the proposed project for Manning's n values of 0.013 and 0.010 up to the Standard Project Flood (SPF), which peaked at 4,039 cfs. Tide effects were investigated for tides of -2.7 ft, 6.7 ft, 10.0 ft, and 16.8 ft, National Geodetic Vertical Datum. Flow conditions were improved in the model by modifying the tunnel alignment, the shape of the tunnel, and transitions near the middle of the tunnel. The stilling basin was modified to improve flow conditions for the varying tide effects. Riprap protection downstream of the stilling basin was verified as being adequate for the SPF. Stage-discharge relations were determined as were flow velocities and water-surface profiles in the tunnel approach. Hydraulic grade lines were determined for the tunnel for several flows. Flow velocities at the stilling basin end sill are presented as are velocities in the West Basin of the Mamaroneck Harbor

RECOVERY : a mathematical model to predict the temporal response of surface water to contaminated sediments( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

RECOVERY is a PC-based screening-level model to assess the impact of contaminated bottom sediments on surface waters. The analysis is limited to organic contaminants with the assumption that the water column is well mixed. The contaminant is assumed to follow linear, reversible, equilibrium sorption and first-order decay kinetics. The physical representation of a system by RECOVERY consists of a well-mixed water column (i.e., zero- dimensional) underlain by a vertically stratified sediment column (i.e., one-dimensional). The sediment is well mixed horizontally, but segmented vertically into a well-mixed surface (active) layer and deep sediment. The deep sediment is segmented into contaminated and clean sediment regions. Pathways incorporated in the RECOVERY model, in addition to sorption and decay, are volatilization, burial, resuspension, settling, advection, and pore-water diffusion. RECOVERY is designed for interactive implementation via a personal computer. The program allows the user to rapidly generate and analyze recovery scenarios for contaminated sediments. The software includes graphical displays and is self-documented. A description of the model, a confumation application, and a user's guide are included in this report
Effects of hurricane surge barrier on hydraulic environment, Jamaica Bay New York : hydraulic model investigation by Robert F Athow( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An existing comprehensive physical model that correctly reproduced tides, tidal currents, hurricane surges, and salinity distribution throughout the New York Harbor area and especially the Jamaica Bay complex was used to determine the effects of 13 different hurricane surge barrier plans on the hydraulic environment of Jamaica Bay. The study included tests in the model to determine: (a) the size of the upgated navigation opening that will provide the suppression required inside Jamaica Bay during periods of hurricanes and northeasterly storms; (b) the maximum current velocities in and near the navigation opening that will be experienced by navigation during normal tidal conditions; (c) the effects of the hurricane surge protection structure on tides, tidal currents, salinities, and pollution dispersion patterns within the bay for normal tide conditions; and (d) the minimum area of gated tidal passages required to maintain existing conditions in the bay with respect to salinities and pollution dispersion. During the course of the study, additional tests were conducted to investigate schemes to enhance circulation within the bay
