Investigation of release temperatures for Kinzua Dam, Allegheny River, Pennsylvania : hydraulic model investigation by Mark S Dortch( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kinzua Dam, which impounds the Allegheny Reservoir, is a multipurpose project that includes pumped-storage hydropower and flood control. Prior to construction of Kinzua Dam, the Allegheny River in its vicinity was considered primarily a warmwater stream and supported an important smallmouth bass sport fishery. Since construction of the dam and power station, stream temperatures below the dam have been colder than expected. A hybrid modeling study was initiated to determine the causes of colder-than-expected releases and to identify and evaluate measures that could be taken to increase the release temperatures. Temperature data were collected and the enlarged data base was used to better understand the physical processes to be simulated in a pumped-storage reservoir thermal simulation numerical model. A physical model, scale 1:100, of the inlet-outlet structure and the surrounding Allegheny Reservoir near-field topography was used to determine the selective withdrawal and pumped-storage mixing characteristics. Mathematical thermal model simulations were used to determine the major factors contributing to the release characteristics. The study determined that the pumped-storage operations have not been the cause of the colder-than-desired releases. Pumped-storage actually causes the hypolimnion to warm faster without significant cooling of the epilimnion. Structural modification of the sluices was determined to be the most effective and practical means of releasing warmer water
Grays Landing Spillway and stilling basin, Monongahela River, Pennsylvania : hydraulic model investigation by Edward D Rothwell( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tests were conducted on a 1:36-scale section model to investigate the hydraulic performance of the deeply submerged stilling basin for the Grays Landing Spillway. The model was used to evaluate and develop the most satisfactory stilling basin for optimum hydraulic performance. The purpose of the model investigation also included determining the pressures along the spillway crest, velocities in the stilling basin and exit channel, and the capability of various stilling basins to pass ice without impacting and abrading the apron, baffle piers, and end sill. The size, gradation, and extent of riprap required for adequate protection of the downstream channel were also determined. The hydraulic model investigation of the stilling basin revealed the general adequacy of the design of the spillway with satisfactory performance of the proposed spillway crest. From the hydraulic performance of various types of energy dissipators investigated, the most appropriate stilling basin was the type 5 design. Shorter basins produced higher velocities downstream (up to 15.5 fps) and required larger downstream riprap protection. The type 5 design stilling basin allowed the baffle blocks to be located farther downstream to prevent the direct attack of ice against the baffles and stilling basin apron
