Abstract:

Lock and Dam No. 17 will comprise a nonnavigable gated dam with three 61-ft-wide by 27-ft-high tainter gates 9.8 miles above the confluence of the Arkansas and Verdigris Rivers, and a 110- by 600-ft lock located about 0.6 mile east in an excavated, slack-water navigation canal. Two 1120-scale fixed-bed models, reproducing the upper and lower reaches of the river channel and the slack-water navigation canal, were used to study navigation conditions at the upstream and downstream entrances to the navigation canal, and to determine flow conditions that could be expected near the entrances to the slack-water canal and through existing and proposed bridges and the modifications required to produce satisfactory navigation conditions through the reach.
