Saving the past from the future : archaeological curation in the St. Louis District by Michael K Trimble ( Book )
3 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Millions of dollars of federal funds have been spent on the recovery of archaeological resources, but did not address curation and maintenance needs. A 1988 inspection revealed that the St. Louis District's collections were deteriorating. The St. Louis District is responsible for the management of cultural resources on District property and for the archaeological and historical resources removed from those lands. As mandated by federal law, agencies are required to ensure that all recovered archaeological materials and the associated records are adequately curated. District collections are public property. They are the result of many years of archaeological research and the expenditure of millions of dollars of federal funds. A typical federally-sponsored mitigation program provides for the recovery of materials from archaeological sites, analysis of recovered items, publication and circulation of a final report, and placement of collections in storage facilities for preservation and future study. Most collections were stored by universities and museums. However, inadequate funding and failing facilities seriously impair the ability of these institutions to adequately care for these collections. Corrective measures taken will enable the St. Louis District to meet minimum federal requirements of adequate, long term curation of archaeological collections and implement an efficient archaeological curation program that will protect and preserve archaeological resources for future generations

Single-valve prototype tests, main lock, Locks and Dam 26, Mississippi River, Alton, Illinois by E. Dale Hart ( Book )
2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Prototype tests were conducted to determine the fastest permissible single-valve lock chamber filling (and emptying) that could be tolerated without exceeding the generally accepted maximum load per hawser of 5 tons. A number of filling valve openings were used while hawser loads and other phenomena were measured. As a result, initial filling valve opening of 3.4 ft (20 sec) was recommended. No restrictions on the emptying valve opening were found to be necessary. (Author)

Shoaling conditions in Sawyer Bend and lower entrance to Chain of Rocks Canal, Mississippi River : hydraulic model investigation : final report by James E Foster ( Book )
3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This investigation was concerned with the development of an adequate channel and access to the docking facilities along the right bank in Sawyer Bend and the reduction or elimination of shoaling in the lower entrance to the Chain of Rocks Canal. The alignment of the channel upstream of Mosenthien Island and the movement of sediment from the Missouri River along the right bank caused an increase in flow through the chute channel to the left of Mosenthien Island and shoaling in the channel along the industrial docking facilities in Sawyer Bend. Shoaling in the lower entrance to the canal during low flows has created a serious problem because of the amount of dredging required and the lack of suitable disposal areas. The purpose of the model study was to develop plans that would provide a satisfactory channel in Sawyer Bend and reduce or eliminate the need for dredging in the lower entrance and approach to the Chain of Rocks Canal. A movable-bed model, constructed to scales of 1:250 horizontally and 1:100 vertically, reproduced the Mississippi River and adjacent overbank areas between miles 191.0 and 180.5
McGee Creek pumping station siphon, Pike County, Illinois : hydraulic model investigation by Ronald R Copeland ( Book )
3 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A 1:4.36-scale hydraulic model of the proposed McGee Creek pumping station siphon was used to develop a design with adequate hydraulic performance. The saxophone outlet design was modified to ensure maintenance of the priming seal. Priming times and head losses were measured in the model. Modifications to decrease priming times were tested, including a reduced cross-sectional area at the crown, and air escape vents. The recommended design siphon operated satisfactorily for the entire range of expected tailwaters and discharges. (Author)
