Abstract:

Tests were conducted on a 1100-scale model to determine the cause of and means of eliminating hazardous navigation conditions at the upstream lock entrance. Results indicated that navigation difficulties are due principally to a position of lock and guard wall which are not aligned with the project channel, and b limited maneuver area available for tows. Conditions are also somewhat affected by flow from the Mohawk River 5th Branch which joins the Hudson 12 mile above the dam, the bend in the Hudson upstream of the lock, the elevation of the tops of the ports in the guard wall, and the relatively large flow over the low section of the dam near the lock.
