Ice jam flood assessment for the St. John River basin, Aroostook County, Maine by Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (U.S.)( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ice jams occur almost every year on the Aroostook and St. John rivers in northern Maine. While most of these jams cause minor flooding or no flooding at all, ice jams have caused severe flooding six times in the last 20 years. In 1991 ice jams on the St. John River caused damage estimated at $14 million. This report reviews field observations of the ice regime on the rivers and discusses possible mitigation measures-ice retention structures, channel modifications and early warning systems. In addition, since the 1991 ice jam caused water levels to rise so quickly that people were stranded in their homes, the development and installation of an ice jam motion detection system is described. To aid in early warning, a system to predict the potential for ice jams and their severity that is based on a correlation of hydro-meteorological data with the ice regime is presented. (MM)

Newburyport Harbor, Massachusetts by Noble J Brogdon( Book )

4 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Six plans were selected for extensive hydraulic model testing. Test results consists of comparable measurements for base and proposed improvement conditions. Anlaysis of these data indicates that none of the six plans would cause any significant overall effects to base condition tidal heights, salinities, or dye dispersion. The data analysis does indicate very significant changes in current patterns and magnitudes and in shoaling and scour in the entrance areas and on the outer bar. Most effects were confined to the local area of the plan but generally influenced overall conditions throughout the estuary very little. Plans including the curved extension to the north jetty would each results in a small reduction to the shoaling rates in the outer bar of the channel to such a degree as to offset the gains realized in the outer bar channel. These three plans and Plan 2C would cause hazardous navigation condtions through the entrance due to the extremely high current velocities generated by the plans. Plans D and 3E has the least effects of any of the plans on entrance shoaling and scour. None of the six plans tested had any significant effect on shoaling and scour rates or patterns along the beaches and offshore areas. Each plan resulted in a general but small increase in shoaling along the eastern half of the north shoreline of Plum Island. Plan D provided complete protection of the north shoreline of Plum Island.

Properties of urea-doped ice in the CRREL test basin by Ken-ichi Hirayama( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the course of model tests with urea-doped ice in the CRREL Ice Engineering Facility test basin, the growth process and the physical and mechanical properties of the model ice were investigated. The parameters which were varied were: urea concentration in the tank water, air temperature during growth, growth duration, and tempering time. Uniformity of ice thickness and ice mechanical properties over the whole tank area were found to be satisfactory. The structure of the urea-doped ice was found to be similar to that of the ice except for a relatively thick incubation layer over a dendritic bottom layer. Empirical relationships were established between: ice thickness and negative degree-hours; mechanical properties and growth temperature, urea concentration, and ice thickness; and reduction in mechanical properties and tempting time. The results of the study are presented in charts which permit reliable scheduling of model tests with required ice thickness and ice flexural strength. (Author)
Design for harbor entrance improvements, Wells Harbor, Maine : hydraulic model investigation by Robert R Bottin( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A 1:50-scale (undistorted) hydarulic model of Wells Harbor, Maine, which included the entrance to the harbor, approximately 900 ft and 1100 ft of shoreline to the south and north of the harbor, respectively, and sufficient offshore area in the Gulf of Maine to permit generation of the required test waves, was used to investigate effects of proposed improvements at the harbor entrance on wave action. Proposed improvement plans consisted of the installation of stone spur dikes in the jettied entrance and a breakwater attached to the existing north jetty. A 20-ft-long wave generator, a model circulation system, and an automated data acquisition and control system were used in model operation. Model tests showed that during periods of moderate to large wave attack, the existing harbor entrance experiences hazardous navigation conditions due to breaking waves and interaction of waves with tidal currents. Several spur-dike, jetty and breakwater configurations were examined for their effect on wave conditions. Whether tidal velocities following installation of the proposed spur dikes will be sufficient to maintain a self-scouring channel at described navigable depths is beyond the scope of this investigation. However, qualitative indications are that the spur dikes will be beneficial in reducing maintenance dredging requirements

Shoreline changes along the outer shore of Cape Cod from Long Point to Monomoy Point by Lawrence W Gatto( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This investigation utilized historical and recent aerial photographs and satellite imagery in (1) estimating changes in positions of the high-water line and sea cliff break and base, in rates of accretion and/or erosion, and in volumes of transported sediment, and (2) providing a preliminary evaluation of the direction of littoral transport along the outer Cape Cod coast. Using aerial photographs acquired in 1938, 1952, 1971 and 1974 with manual photointerpretation techniques, changes in the distances from selected reference points to the cliff break, cliff base and the high-water line were measured. LANDSAT-1 and -2 imagery acquired from 1 September 1972 to 28 May 1975 was evaluated for use in determining the directions of littoral transport that are active the predominant amount of time. Although the imagery has been very useful for this purpose at other locations, it proved to be useless along thq outer shore of Cape Cod. Largest net migrations of the high water line from 1938 to 1974 occurred in the northern and southern portions of this coast. The northern maximum high water line was 321.4 ft, the southern was 1794.6 ft. The central portion of the coast was generally more stable with changes varying from 6.8 to 157.6 ft. Cliff-base recession rates varied from 0.4 to 7.3 ft/yr. Maximum estimated net volume of sediment deposited per linear foot of beach from 1938 to 1974 was 334 cu yd (based on 2 cu yd/ft of recession or accretion); maximum eroded was 914 cu yd. Changes in the configuration of spits were used to evaluate directions of littoral transport since suspended-sediment concentrations were generally not sufficient to act as natural tracers of surface currents
Dickey-Lincoln School Lakes hydrothermal model study : hydaulic model investigation by Mark S Dortch( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A one-dimensional, vertically stratified, thermal simulation model was developed for prediction of temperature within and downstream from Dickey-Lincoln School Lakes. Two physical hydraulic models were used to obtain an improved understanding and description of the hydrodynamic response of the lakes to pumped-storage hydropower. An undistorted, 1:200-scale model of the Dickey Lake intake structures and local topography was used to determine the steady-state selective withdrawal and pumpback flow characteristics for various conditions. A highly distorted-scale model (1:3600 horizontal, 1:180 vertical) was used to simulate the entire dual reservoir system and to determine the response to dynamic, unsteady-state, density stratified flow. Information from the two physical models was used to modify existing algorithms and to develop new algorithms for the mathematical model. The mathematical model allows simulation of the hydrodynamic and heat exchange characteristics so that the thermal regimes within and downstream from the two lakes can be determined for various hydrologic and meteorologic conditions and various pumped-storage hydropower operations.
