Abstract:

This report presents the conclusions and recommendations of the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Stations study of the feasibility of using physical hydraulic models to estimate the effects of the proposed Lake Erie International Jetport on lake hydrodynamics. This report is the second of a series to be published under the general title Lake Erie International Jetport Model Feasibility Investigation. The physical models considered in the study are mass circulation, wave action, breakwater stability, and longshore littoral transport models. For circulation models, similitude requirements, scales, model verification, and advantages and limitations are considered for 1 a rotating lake model, 2 a rotating model of a section of the lake near Cleveland, and 3 a nonrotating model of a section of lake near Cleveland, all with wind-driven circulation. A fourth circulation model, similar to 3, with slope gravity currents is also discussed.
