Abstract:

High forces tend to move and bind large tows against the upstream guard wall at John H. Overton Lock and Dam Prototype velocities, discharges, and water-surface elevations were obtained to verify and supplement physical model study information. The data are also a basis by which prototype performance, following modifications to the guard wall ports, can be assessed. Experiments with the initial unbaffled layout are to determine prototype flow conditions to help evaluate observations in the small physical model.
