Abstract:

Presented in this report are the results of a model study on river training structures called vane dikes. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the relative effects of vane dikes on the flow distribution and bed configuration of a typical Missouri River bend. Different structure arrangements were tested to determine the optimum van dike configuration by which the flow could be diverted away from the bank. Tests were also conducted to determine the effectiveness of the vane dike structures in the removal of point bars along convex banks and the variations in the sediment deposition landward wet lands of the vane dikes under various combinations of vane and gap lengths.
