INTRODUCTION: The lock approach research required the development of a method to rapidly evaluate the navigation conditions in lock approaches for various guard wall configurations. The idea was to numerically model many guard wall configurations and then evaluate the most promising designs in the physical model. The method was to select a numerical modeling technique and then evaluate the appropriateness of the model’s use (validate) with comparisons to laboratory data. If the model adequately simulated the flow field produced by a guard wall, then various designs would be modeled in an attempt to gain general insight into the controlling features of guard walls. These simulation results could then be used to develop design ideas for further testing in the physical model.
