Abstract:

Lock and Dam No. 8 will consist of a 110- by 600-ft lock and a 1120-ft-long, gated, nonnavigable dam. A movable-bed model reproducing 11.0 miles of the Arkansas River, with a horizontal scale of 1120 and a vertical scale of 180, was used to determine a the suitability of the proposed site for the lock and dam structure b adequacy of proposed regulating works in the reach upstream and downstream of the structures and modifications required to provide adequate channel dimensions and satisfactory navigation conditions with minimum maintenance and c relative effectiveness of various sizes of initially dredged channels in a section of river similar to the section reproduced in the model downstream of the dam.
