Abstract:

Lock and Dam No. 14, proposed for construction on the Arkansas River, will provide a navigable pool extending upstream about 20 miles to the Robert S. Kerr Dam. The investigation, concerned with the study of navigation conditions in the approaches to the lock with the proposed design and with the development of modifications required to produce adequate channel depths and to overcome or minimize the effects of any adverse navigation conditions, was conducted on an undistorted, 1120-scale, semifixed-bed model, reproducing about 3.4 miles of the Arkansas River and adjacent overbank area including Bruce Island and Cherokee Chute and the lock and dam structures.
