Abstract:

An anticipated increase in vessel traffic at Lock and Dam 51 L and D 51 on the Ohio River prompted the development of an analytical model to assist in scheduling tows for lockage. This model is in the form of a digital computer program which is available at the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station WES. The basic design of the program is amenable to modification for use at other single-chamber lockage facilities similar to L and D 51. Modified author abstract
