River of interests : water management in south Florida and the Everglades, 1948-2010 by Matthew C Godfrey ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1948 Congress answered the outcry of Florida residents for both flood protection and a more reliable drinking water supply by authorizing the Central and Southern Flood Control Project, otherwise known as the C&SF Project. Shortly thereafter, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began construction on one of the nation's largest infrastructure projects. While the project served its intended purposes far better than ever anticipated, it also caused extensive damage to the naturally occurring ecosystems of south Florida, including the Everglades ecosystem located within and beyond Everglades National Park. Here is a history of the construction of the C&SF Project and the project's unintended impacts on the environment, and the evolution of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP)

San Juan National Historic Site, San Juan, Puerto Rico, design for prevention of wave-induced erosion : hydraulic model investigation by Robert R Bottin ( Book )
3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A 1:75-scale (undistorted) hydraulic model of the San Juan National Historic Site, which included the entire historic site, the entrance to San Jaun Harbor, part of Isla de Cabras, and sufficient offshore area in the Atlantic Ocean to permit generation of the required test waves, was used to investigate the effects of proposed structures on wave attack at the historic site. Proposed improvement plans consisted of the installation of rubble-mound revetments and/or breakwaters on both the ocean and bay sides of El Morro Castle. A 90-ft-long wave generator and an automated data acquisition and control system (ADACS) were utilized in model operation

An estimate of channel roughness of interoceanic canals : final report by Garbis H Keulegan ( Book )
3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The hydraulic roughness of the interoceanic canals created by either nuclear or conventional construction is considered. In the canals of nuclear excavation, the part of resistance due to the ejecta is estimated on the basis of distribution of size of ejecta material; and the part due to the expansions and contractions in the canal created by the explosives is attributed to the isostatic losses from free turbulence. For the conventional canals charged with very fine sediment, the friction of the granular surfaces is assumed to be that in a hydrodynamically smooth surface. In the presence of bed features, the added form resistance is estimated from the findings of Alam and Kennedy concerning alluvial rivers. A detailed study of resistance noted in Fort Collins tests shows that there is a difference in the frictional processes between tthe laboratory flumes and the natural rivers, suggesting that for resistance estimates reliance should be placed on river calibration.

Approximate upper limit of irregular wave runup on riprap by John P Ahrens ( Book )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report describes methods to calculate the approximate upper limit of runup on riprap revetments caused by irregular wave action. A formula to predict the maximum runup is developed from one laboratory study and compared to data from a second study. The formula is found to fit the data of both studies quite well. A slightly improved version of the formula is then developed by combining the data from both studies. The improved formula has little or no systematic error associated with structure slope, water depth, or wave conditions and is easy to use. Errors between predicted and observed elevations of the maximum runup had a root mean square value of approximately 12 percent. Keywords: Irregular waves; Prediction method; Revetments; Riprap; Runup
Stability of articulated concrete mattresses for Herbert Hoover dike improvements, Lake Okeechobee, Florida : coastal model investigation by Robert D Carver ( Book )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of the model investigation reported herein was to investigate the suitability of articulated concrete mattresses (ACM's) for use at Lake Okeechobee, FL. Due to the absence of significant experience in applying this method of slope protection in a wave environment and the lack of appropriate design criteria, it was decided to investigate the stability response of the ACM's via a large-scale, two-dimensional coastal model. Based on tests conducted, it was concluded that for one layer of ACM's : a. The maximum stable wave height is 3 ft if the mat is secured by top anchors only. b. An addition of three rows of anchors near the still water level (swl) and two rows of toe anchors provides stability for up to 4-ft waves. Keywords: Articulated concrete mattresses; Coastal structures; Hydraulic models. (JES)
