SHOALING IN HARBOR ENTRANCES; HYDRAULIC MODEL INVESTIGATION
This report covers the results of a general investigation to determine and demonstrate some of the principles involved in shoaling in harbor entrances and some of the factors to be considered in the development of solutions to the problems. The model used was not a reproduction of a reach of any stream but was designed to fit in an existing facility and provide for two bends and a straight reach between the bends. The model was of the movable-bed type with scales established arbitrarily as 1:400 horizontally and 1:100 vertically. Tests were conducted with the harbor entrance located along the concave bank of the upper bend, in the straight reach, and along the convex bank of the lower bend simultaneously. Results of this investigation are given in the report.
