Description: Technical memorandum
Synopsis: This memorandum is the final report of a model study of plans for the elimination of shoaling in Wilmington Harbor, Delaware. The study was conducted at the U. S. Waterways Experiment Station on an extension to a model formerly used for a study of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal entrance. Including this extension, the model reproduced approximately 26 miles of the Delaware River, 16-1/2 miles of the Christina River, 2 miles of Brandywine Creek, and most of the overbank area flooded by the Christina River at high tide. The model was constructed to linear scale ratios of 1 to 800 horizontally and 1 to 80 vertically. Provisions were made on the model for simulating the tides, tidal currents, and shoaling action of the prototype
