Abstract: A fixed-bed model of Mayport-Mill Cove, constructed to scales of 1:500 horizontally and 1:50 vertically, reproduced a portion of the Atlantic Ocean adjacent to the entrance and the St. Johns River upstream to Hibernia Point. The purpose of the model study was twofold: (a) to investigate the effects of proposed improvement plans for the Mayport Naval Basin area on existing shoaling rates, hydraulics, salinities, and flushing; and (b) to investigate the effects of proposed improvement plans in the Mill Cove area on flushing, hydraulics, salinities, and channel shoaling. The model study was conducted in three phases : phase 1 involved the model verification tests, phase 2 involved the Mayport Naval Basin Study, and phase 3 involved the Mill Cove study. Phase 1 is reported herein; phases 2 and 3 will be reported in Reports 2 and 3 of this series. The model verification tests described herein indicated that the model hydraulic and salinity regimes were in satisfactory agreement with those of the prototype for comparable conditions. Model verification also included a comprehensive shoaling verification of shoaling rates and patterns in the navigation channel and Mayport Naval Basin. During the shoaling verification, model operation procedures were developed by trial and error to achieve satisfactory reproduction of observed prototype shoaling distribution patterns within the various reaches of the navigation channel and in Mayport Basin. This report contains the results of tests conducted for phase 1 of the study. NOTE: This file is large. Allow your browser several minutes to download the file.
