Description: Potamology Report
Introduction: This report constitutes the second and final of the reports to be submitted on preliminary flume tests of Mississippi River revetment. There are presented herein the results of tests 8 to 21, inclusive, which were conducted during the period 24 June 1947 - 1 March 1949 with mass sand-asphalt revetment, concrete blocks, retards, and standard and V-type articulated concrete revetments. The results of the original base test (test 2 b), conducted without any revetment or other improvements and of earlier tests of riprap groins, standard articulated concrete revetment, and mass sand-asphalt revetment (tests 3 to 7, inclusive) are contained in Potamology Investigations Report No. 2-1, dated October 1947, and titled "Preliminary Flume Tests of Mississippi River Revetment" (1st Interim Report). It is desired to point out that all of these tests were entirely preliminary in nature, and complete data were not obtained on any of them. It is believed, however, that these experiments have been of considerable interest and value to engineers of the Mississippi River Commission and the Waterways Experiment Station, and they indicate that much valuable information is to be gained from such studies.
