An evaluation of movable-bed tidal inlet models by Subhash C Jain ( Book )
1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of movable-bed tidal inlet hydraulic models in predicting prototype behavior, by comparing model predictions with the observations made in the prototype, and to examine the scaling requirements for such models. Seven model studies were conducted by WES during the period 1939 to 1969. Calibrations of five of these models, as measured by bed topography changes, are evaluated by means of quantitative indicators, including correlation coefficients and root-mean-square (rms) error. The values of correlation coefficients, disregarding measurement errors in model and prototype soundings, were generally low and those of rms error high. Evaluation of data from the Galveston Harbor entrance model revealed that the shoaling rates and distribution along the navigation channel predicted by the model are not in good agreement with the prototype data. It was concluded that the model reproduction of details of bed topography was less accurate than that which might have been obtained had the proposed similitude criteria been used, and had more complete prototype data been available for calibration. Disagreement between model and prototype is believed to have been due to: scale effects introduced by nonsimilarity ofthe physical processes; insufficient prototype data for calibration and verification; oversimplification of the available prototype data for use in the model study; and experimental errors

Scour around circular bridge piers at high Froude numbers by Subhash C Jain ( Book )
1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The results of laboratory experiments on scour around circular piers in cohesionless bed material at high Froude numbers, F, up to 1.5 are presented. The scour depths in sediment transport regime (F is greater than F sub c) first slightly decreases and then increases with the increase in the Froude number. A formula to predict the scour depth at Froude numbers (F-F sub c) is equal to or greater than 0.15, is developed. The limitations of some of the existing predictors of local scour are discussed, and a new formula to predict the maximum clearwater scour is proposed

Factors influencing ice conveyance at river confluences by R Ettema ( Book )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report documents preliminary findings concerning ice jam conditions in river confluences, using two laboratory approaches. First is categorizing the different conditions of ice discharge into a confluence based on two general classifications: free drift of ice and movement of contiguous ice accumulations. The variables defining ice discharge for the two categories are assembled via dimensional analysis into two consistent sets of nondimensional parameters. The categorization, together with the nondimensional parameters, is used to evaluate ice jam problems at confluences the two most common causes of jams seem to be sluggish water velocities in the outflow channel and local bathymetric features. The second approach examines how confluence geometry and flow processes affect ice discharge for example, the influence on ice discharge of bathymetric features. The approach uses a large hydraulic model of a two channel confluence, which is adaptable to a variety of channels, and particle image velocimetry (PIV) for determining and mapping whole fields of water and ice velocities in a confluence. PIV, which is becoming extensively used, lends itself very well here. This study is the first demonstration of the PIV method for ice movement through a two river confluence. It shows promise. The hydraulic model and PIV method are used in a case study of ice discharge through the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, a confluence prone to severe ice jams
Sediment discharge of alluvial streams calculated from bed-form statistics by Joe C Willis ( Book )
1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fundamental principles of flow ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1962 and 2000 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Uses experiment and animation to illustrate the basic concepts and physical relationships that are involved in the analysis of fluid motion. Discusses the variation of velocity, the distinction between rotational and irrotational flow, and the pressure-velocity relationship for nonuniform states of motion. Applies the integrated continuity, work-energy, and impulse-momentum equations to the phenomenon of jet propulsion
Hydraulics and mechanics of river ice jams by Mehmet Secil Uzuner ( Book )
2 editions published between 1967 and 1974 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An analytical model is developed for evolution of embacles in rivers. The differential equations underlying the analysis are the static force equilibrium relation for the fragmented ice cover; the unsteady, nonuniform momentum relation for the liquid flow beneath the ice; and the unsteady continuity equations for the solid and liquid phases. The analysis is limited to the case of uniform, rectangular channels. It yields predictions for the streamwise distribution of the thickness of the ice cover and the depth of flow beneath it; the flow depth and cover thickness over the uniform downstream reach where the jam thickness and flow depth are constant; the flow depth at the upstream end of the jam; and the velocity of propagation of the jam front. Estimates are also obtained for the rate of growth of a jam during early stages of its evolution, just following initiation
