Introduction: This memorandum constitutes a report on the results of a short series of tests conducted at the U. S. Waterways Experiment Station on a l-to-36-scale model of the proposed armored ends for the Morganza Fuse-Plug Levee. The general purpose of the model studies was to determine the best shape of armored ends to insure satisfactory protection to the adjacent main levee sections. The model tests were authorized verbally by General M. c. Tyler, President, Mississippi River Commission in a meeting with representatives of the Experiment Station on 7 July 1945. The tests were conducted during the period 15 July - 15 August 1945. Close liaison with the Experiment Station 'W8.S maintained during the conduct of all tests by Mr. G. D. Waddill and Mr. R. H.
