Abstract: A two-dimensional numerical model, TABS-2, was used to predict fine sediment deposition in the lock approach channels upstream and downstream from Lock and Dam No. 3 on the Red River Waterway, Louisiana. The numerical model was used to evaluate the effects of various design changes on fine sediment deposition. These included the cross-section shape in the upstream lock approach channel, the distance between the lock wall and the first spillway gate, the number of openings in the ported guard wall, and location of a berm in the upstream channel.
