Abstract:

Ozark Lock and Dam will consist of a 110- by 600-ft lock and an 890- ft-long, gated, nonnavigable dam. A 1120-scale, fixed-bed model, reproducing 2. 7 miles of the Arkansas River, was used to a demonstrate flow conditions in the lock approaches b measure the distribution of flow across the model at the axis of the dam for a number of flows and d assist in developing modifications of the approaches and structures to improve navigation conditions. Tests were concerned with the study of flow patterns, measurement of velocities in the lock approaches, and behavior of a model tow on entering and leaving the lock.
