Abstract:

The paper covers in a general way the use of a hydraulic model as an aid to design engineers in the design of a deep-draft navigable channel from the Gulf of Mexico across Matagorda and Lavaca Bays. It covers problems subject to model analysis, the type of model used, field data requirements, adjustment and verification of the model, testing of proposed improvement plans, the analysis of test results, and the limitations of the model.
