Description: Potamology Report
Abstract: This report describes piezometer observations at Reid Bedford Bend revetment from the spring of 1947 to May 1948 and presents tentative conclusions drawn from these observations. The soil conditions, bank failures, and analyses were described in Potamology Investigations Report No. 5-2, "Field Investigation of Reid Bedford Bend Revetments, Mississippi River," (Appendix A, Soils Investigations), Vol. 3, dated June 1948, and will not be repeated here. The piezometers were installed primarily to determine whether sufficient seepage forces could develop which would be material factors in large mass failures of the bank, and, secondarily, to gain some idea of the effect of seepage forces in producing surface erosion.
