Revetment stability tests for Sargent Beach, Texas( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this study was to investigate, via a two-dimensional (2-D) coastal model, alternate designs for the proposed revetment. Tests were conducted at a geometrically undistorted scale of 1:24, model to prototype. Based on test results, it was concluded that: (1) Four- to six-ton armor stone is stable for the maximum wave heights that can be expected to occur for 8- and 10-sec waves at still-water levels (swl's) of +4.0 to +14.0 ft mean low tide (mlt) with assumed scour depths of -3.6 and -8.6 ft mlt. (2) Stability of the original concrete blocks, which were 6.0 ft by 5.5 ft by 2.5 ft and had 0 percent porosity, was only marginally acceptable for the maximum wave heights that can be expected to occur for 8- and 10-sec waves at swl's of +4.0 to +14.0 ft mlt with an assumed scour depth of -3.6 ft mlt. (3) Several modified block plans were tested and it was determined that the optimum block size was 5.75 ft by 5.75 ft by 2.5 ft. These blocks, weighing 6 tons and having a porosity of 4 percent, should prove stable for the maximum wave heights that can be expected to occur for 8- to 10-sec waves at swl's of +4.0 to +14.0 ft mlt with an assumed scour depth of -10 ft mlt.

Numerical modeling of hydrodynamics : Brazos Island Harbor Project, Texas (Brownsville Ship Channel) by Larry M Hauck( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project was authorized for navigation channel improvements, which include deepening of the Brownsville Ship Channel from 38 ft below mean low water (mlw) to 42 ft below mlw and channel widening. The 19-mile-long Brownsville Ship Channel begins in the Gulf of Mexico, transects the Laguna Madre, and continues landlocked to Brownsville. This study involved the use of the vertically integrated two-dimensional numerical model RMA-2V to simulate the ship channel and the lower Laguna Madre. RMA-2V was used to produce the hydrodynamics (water levels and velocities) for existing and three alternative channel designs. These hydrodynamic conditions were used in a ship simulator study. Historical velocity (direction and speed) measurements taken at approximately hourly intervals during 15-18 July 1980 at several stations were used to verify RMA-2V. Water level measurements from four tide gages were also available for the same period to facilitate model verification. While some difficulties occurred in reproducing measured water level responses in the interior of the Laguna Madre, good numerical model simulation of velocity directions and magnitudes was obtained in the Brazos Island Harbor Projects area.

Corpus Christi Inner Harbor shoaling investigation by Tamsen M Smith( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A combination of numerical models was used to test alternatives for shoaling prevention in Corpus Christi Harbor, Texas. The vertically averaged model system, TABS-2, was used to simulate contributions of sediments by bay waters to the sediment load. The laterally averaged estuarine model, LAEMSED, was used to simulate density currents in the channel and sedimentation that occurs at the harbor entrance. Applications of the models testing advance maintenance, removal of industrial discharges and withdrawals, advance maintenance in conjunction with a sill, and movement of the disposal areas showed a 20 percent decrease in shoaling as a result of industrial activity removal, a 75 percent decrease in sediments entering the bay channel due to disposal area relocation, and practically no effect on shoaling rates resulting from advance maintenance. Appendix A presents the results of a reconnaissance survey on shoaling conditions in Corpus Christi Harbor. Appendix B describes the TABS-2 numerical modeling system, and Appendix C describes the theoretical aspects of LAEMSED
