Lake Darling Spillway, Souris River, North Dakota : hydraulic model investigation by Deborah R Cooper( Book )

6 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concrete gravity ogee spillway for the Lake Darling Dam will contain five 22-ft-high by 43-ft-wide gate bays separated by 10-ft-wide pairs. Outlet works consisting of four sluices within the piers will discharge into the spillway stilling basin. A hydraulic-jump-type stilling basin will provide satisfactory dissipation of the spillway and sluice flows. A 1:36-scale model of the spillway, sluices, stilling basin, approach area, and exit channel was used to study the overall hydraulic performance of the structure. Tests indicated that flow conditions in the approach to the spillway with both uncontrolled and controlled flows were satisfactory for the full range of anticipated discharges. Eddies developed on either side of the stilling basin. Constricting the channel flare to a uniform width eliminated the eddies. The size and extent of stone protection required on the dam embankment, side slopes and bottom of the approach channel, and side slopes and bottom of the exit channel were determined by model investigations.

Scour protection for locks and dams 2-10, upper Mississippi River : hydraulic model investigation by Jerry V Markussen( Book )

5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A 1:70-scale physical model of a typical spillway section of the locks and dams on the Upper Mississippi River was used to determine the probable cause of the scour that has occurred at these projects. It was determined that single-gate opertion on the spillways created hydraulic conditions conducive to scour. A 1:42-scale model was used to develop suitable riprap protection. Two gradations of fill material were found suitable and two gradations of riprap were adequate for protection downstream of the tainter gates and roller gates at these structures. The geometric layout of the riprap depended upon the slope of the scour hole to be repaired. Lock and Dam 2 was studied separately because of its unique stilling basin configuration and operation schedule. Riprap protection similar to the other projects was devised for Lock and Dam 2

Channel control structures for Souris River, Minot, North Dakota : hydraulic model investigation by Peter E Saunders( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Model tests of channel control structures constructed of concrete and gabions were conducted at an undistorted scale ratio of 1:12 to determine the discharge characteristics of the structures, size and extent of riprap required to prevent scour downstream of the structures, effects of ice flowing over the structures, and stability of the gabion structures. The gabion structure (type I) was located in a typical section of trapezoidal channel and a stable gabion configuration was developed by extending the gabion farther up the side slopes and farther downstream of the structure than was indicated in the original design. The concrete structure (type III) was placed in an expanded section of trapezoidal channel with riprap protection on the side slopes and on the channel bottom upstream and downstream of the structures. Model results indicated that the original size and extent of protection could be reduced without endangering the structure. Free and submerged flow discharge characteristics were determined for both types of channel control structures tested, and stability criteria were developed for the gabion structures. (Author)
Vortex problem at intake, Lower St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam, Mississippi River, Minneapolis, Minnesota : hydraulic model investigation by Jackson H Ables( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tests were conducted on a 1:25-scale model to develop the most feasible and permanent solution to a vortex problem at the Lower St. Anthony Falls Lock Intake on the Mississippi River at Minneapolis, Minnesota. On 10 March 1974, a lock employee in a small boat was accidentally drawn into the vortex and killed. Since that time a delayed valve-operating schedule has been used, which results in a fill time in excess of 14 min or about twice the design fill time; and although the vortex condition is reduced, the conditions were not considered satisfactory or safe. The lock is 56 ft wide, 400 ft long, and has a lift of 25 ft. The recommended design (type 5) moved the intakes from the top of the upper gate sill and positioned a new intake in the upstream face of the sill, lowered the approach geometry in the approach to the intake ports, lengthened the bullnose pier 28.75 ft between the existing lock and a possible future auxiliary lock and replaced the 7.5-radius nose of the pier with an elliptical nose, added a vortex suppressor across the 56-ft-wide approach, and modified the culvert tainter control valve schedule from 2.07 min to 4.14 and 6.21 min. These modifications to the intake, geometry of the structure, and approach, together with the slower valve schedules, permited vortex-free operation of the lock. The lock filled in 7.9 min with a 4.14 min valve schedule
Indian Creek pumping station, Mankato, Minnesota : hydraulic model investigation by Bobby P Fletcher( Book )

4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The model study was conducted to evaluate the characteristics of inflow to the original design gravity-flow section and pump sump and to develop modifications required for improving the distribution of flow to the gravity-flow section and pump intakes. The 1:10-scale model indicated the need for certain minor modifications to improve flow characteristics in the forebay and ensure satisfactory flow characteristics and pressures near the pump intakes. The major problems encountered at the pump intakes were generated by the concentrated jet entering and passing through the forebay. The concentrated jet produced adverse currents and turbulence near the pump intakes. Satisfactory approach flows were obtained by installing divider walls to isolate each pump. The major problems encountered at the entrance to the gravity-flow section were generated by the abrupt transition from the forebay to the gravity-flow section. The problems were alleviated by streamlining the entrance to the gravity-flow section. The improved flow conditions at the entrance to the gravity-flow section reduced the severe drawdown at the right abutment and provided a more direct route for flow to enter the gravity-flow section
