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 73 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
Model studies of the Portugues and Bucana Rivers channelization, Puerto Rico : hydraulic model investigation by Noel R Oswalt( Book )
3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 72 libraries worldwide
Two 1:30-scale physical hydraulic models of the Portugues and Bucana Rivers were used to determine the adequacy of the original designs for the flood control channelization project through the city of Ponce, Puerto Rico. The proposed channelization included trapezoidal to rectangular channel transitions, stilling basins, and drop structures in the high-velocity channels. A 3300-ft (prototype) channel length was used to study the transitions and stilling basins including riprap stability downstream from the stilling basins. A 1200-ft (prototype) channel length was used to study the drop structures and the adjacent riprap protection requirements. Test results indicated that the original design with certain modifications would effectively transmit all expected flood releases from the proposed Portugues and Cerrillos Dams. Modifications to transitions at entrances to the high-velocity channel reaches were streamlined within the original right-of-way to reduce surface turbulence and standing waves. Geometry of the original stilling basins was altered to prevent the oblique hydraulic jumps and the end-sill heights were lowered to reduce the water-surface drawdown, surface roller waves, and high bottom velocities downstream of each basin
Outlet works for Cerrillos Dam, Cerrillos River, and Portugues Dam, Portugues River, Puerto Rico : hydraulic model investigation by John F George( Book )
3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 71 libraries worldwide
Tests were conducted on a 1:24-scale model of the outlet works for the Cerrillos and Portugues Dams located in Puerto Rico. The purpose of the model investigation was to determine the performance of the stilling basins for the full range of discharges with minimum head pool and the optimum riprap protection plan for the exit channel. The model reproduced a schematic of the intake tower, conduit transition, 60 percent of the conduit length, the stilling basins, and exit channel. The original design stilling basin (type 1) for the Cerrillos outlet works performed satisfactorily for low discharges of 500 cfs and less, and for the higher range of discharges between 1500 and 2500 cfs (design discharge). The conduits of both Cerrillos and Portugues outlet works were designed to provide for river diversion during construction of the dams. When the dams are completed, the flow will be regulated so that only bank-full capacities will be passed through the stilling basins. The conduit capacities were 4500 cfs for Cerrillos and 5300 cfs for Portugues. However, the stilling basins were designed for 2500 cfs (Cerrillos) and 1100 cfs (Portugues), the bank-full capacities downstream. Therefore, considerable damage to the downstream exit channel will occur should it become necessary to pass the conduit design flow through the outlet works
Breakwater and revetment stability study, San Juan National Historic Site, San Juan, Puerto Rico : hydraulic model investigation by Dennis G Markle( Book )
4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 69 libraries worldwide
A hydraulic model investigation was conducted using both two-dimensional and three-dimensional stability models at undistorted linear scales (model to prototype) of 1:38.5 and 1:50.5, respectively. The purposes of the stability tests were as follows: (a) Develop stable, economical and aesthetically pleasing designs for the offshore breakwater, north revetment, and west revetment to protect the San Juan National Historical Site from storm conditions that would generate depth-limited breaking waves at still-water levels (swl's) of 0.0 and +1.9 ft msl. (b) With the protective structures in place, determine the runup produced on the north and west slopes when exposed to a range of wave heights with wave periods from 7 to 17 sec at swl's of 0.0 and/or +1.9. (c) Both with and without the offshore breakwater and north revetment in place, expose the construction trestle to a range of wave periods and wave heights at swl's of 0.0 and +1.9 to observe the impact of the combined incident and reflected waves on the trestle and support pilings. Test results indicated that a two-layer system of 28-ton armor stone, placed on a 1V-on-2H slope using random replacement, would be an adequate design for the offshore breakwater

Approximate upper limit of irregular wave runup on riprap by John P Ahrens( Book )
2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 54 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

River of interests : water management in south Florida and the Everglades, 1948-2010 by Matthew C Godfrey( file )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 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. "River of Interests: Water Management in South Florida and the Everglades, 1948-2000," 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)
