Navigation conditions at McAlpine Locks and Dam, Ohio River : Hydraulic model investigation by Louis J Shows( Book )

McAlpine Locks and Dam are located on the Ohio River near Louisville, Kentucky, 606.8 miles below Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The locks are located in a bypass canal on the left overbank landward of Shippingport Island. A powerhouse is located along the left bank adjacent to the downstream end of Shippingport Island, and a four-gated spillway section is located adjacent to the powerhouse. A fixed-crest weir extends for the four-gated spillway section upstream 6,600 ft generally parallel to the right band to an upper five-gated spillway section which is connected to the right bank with a 1,200-ft-long fixed-crest weir just upstream of the Pennsylvania Railroad bridge. The structures, designed to maintain a minimum upper pool during low flows extending about 75 miles upstream to Markland Locks and Dam near Warsaw, Kentucky, include a navigation lock with clear chambers dimensions of 110 ft wide by 1,200 ft long located at the lower end of a 1.75-mile-long canal along the left bank and two auxiliary locks between the main lock and left bank that are out of service. A fixed-bed model reproduced about 8.5 miles of the Ohio River channel, the lock approach canal, and adjacent overbank areas to an undistorted scale of 1:120

Guidelines for the design, adjustment, and operation of models for the study of river sedimentation problems by John J Franco( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Streams in which sedimentation problems are encountered are extremely complex and developments within these streams depend on many factors, most of which are interrelated. Few basic principles are available to the design engineer in the solution of problems concerned with channel improvement and stabilization, and many of the plans and types of structures used have been based on experience and general judgment. Because of the difficulties and costs involved in experimenting with the actual river and the impracticality of comparing the effectiveness of various concepts and designs under the same conditions, the development of new principles and procedures or the optimum solution to many problems have to depend to a considerable extent on river model investigations coordinated with results in the field. This report is a general guide for laboratory engineers and technicians concerned with model invesitgations of sedimentation problems in alluvial streams. The report describes many of the principles and procedures used in the design, adjustment, and operation of movable-bed models and the factors to be considered in the development of improvement plans and in the interpretation of model results. Appendices cover the characteristics of model bed material, slopes required, and check list for model design and operation
