Description: Technical report
To maintain navigation on 40 miles of the Monongahela River between Maxwell and Morgantown Locks and Dams, construction of a new lock landward of the existing Lock 8 has been proposed, along with construction of a new lock and dam at river mile 82.2 in the vicinity of Gray's Landing, PA. The new structure at Gray's Landing will consist of an 84-ft-wide by 720-ft-long lock located along the right descending bank and a fixed crest dam. A comprehensive model study was considered necessary to investigate conditions that could be expected with the proposed design and to develop modifications required to ensure satisfactory navigation conditions. The effects of various plans and modifications on water-surface elevations and current directions and velocities were studied, as were the effects of the resulting currents on model towboat and tow behavior.
