Description: Technical note
PURPOSE: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note presents the results of three-dimensional numerical model simulations of Victoria Bendway in the Mississippi River. The primary purpose of this study was threefold: (a) to better understand the near field hydrodynamics adjacent to submerged bendway weirs, (b) to provide insight into the effectiveness of submerged weirs for improving navigation in bendways, and (c) to determine optimum design variables and flow conditions for improving weir field design.
