  • Evaluation of physical and numerical hydraulic models, Masonboro Inlet, North Carolina 

    McTamany, James E. (Coastal Engineering Research Center (U.S.) General Investigation of Tidal Inlets Research ProgramEngineer Research and Development Center (U.S.)Abstract: A fixedbed distorted-scale physical model, a two-dimensional vertically integrated numerical model, and a spatially inteprated numerical model were calibrated to determine prototype conditions at Masonboro Inlet, North Carolina, in September 1969. Comparison of model results with prototype data showed that the physical model and the two-dimensional numerical model reproduced prototype conditions equally well. A second complete set of prototype data, including revised bathymetry in each model, was subsequently obtained at Masonboro Inlet in July 1974. After the bathymetry was updated, the models were run using the observed ocean tide as a forcing condition. The model predictions were then compared with prototype data without further recalibration. Both the physical and the two-dimensional numerical models reproduced observed tidal records and vertically averaged velocities equally well. No appreciable improvement in tidal height or velocity predictions was obtained by modeling prototype wind waves in the physical model. The waves caused a slight increase in bay water levels that also occurred in the prototype. Neither numerical model had the capability to model wind waves. The spatially integrated model only predicts the average bay water level and the inlet mean velocity time histories. The predictions from the other models and the prototype data were averaged for comparison with the spatially integrated model. The spatially integrated model did not predict the average bay levels as well as the other models; however, it did predict the mean inlet velocities significantly better than the other two models. The accuracy of the spatially integrated model in predicting mean inlet velocities appears to be less sensitive to calibration than the more detailed physical and numerical models tested in this study., 1982-02)

  • Tidal inlet response to jetty construction 

    Kieslich, James M. (Coastal Engineering Research Center (U.S.), General Investigation of Tidal Inlets Research ProgramEngineer Research and Development Center (U.S.)Abstract: Thirteen tidal inlets located on the Atlantic, Gulf, and Pacific coasts of the continental United States were selected for a study of the response of inlet ocean entrances to manmade improvements. Inlet entrance behavior following jetty construction were evaluated and guidelines for the functional design of inlet entrance improvements are suggested. The inlets considered in the study were those where a Single updrift or downdrift jetty was built first. The construction of single jetties at inlet entrances has resulted in migration of the channel thalweg toward the jetty regardless of the inlet-bay orientation, the jetty angle with the shoreline, the position of the jetty relative to the direction of net longshore sediment transport, the ratio of net-to-gross transport, or the gross transport. In some cases, this has caused undermining of the jetty. For the inlets studied, the annual channel thalweg migration averaged 31 percent of the total distance available for migration following construction of a single updrift jetty, and 49 percent of the total distance available for migration following construction of a single downdrift jetty. Accretion at the updrift shoreline and erosion at the downdrift shoreline usually followed construction of a single updrift jetty. Accretion rates at the updrift shoreline ranged up to about 800 feet (244 meters) per year. Data on erosion rates of the downdrift shoreline following construction of an updrift jetty were available for only a limited number of inlets. Sufficient information was not available to generalize the response of either adjacent shoreline following construction of a single downdrift jetty. The channel cross-sectional area usually decreased following construction of a single updrift jetty; the decrease in area ranging up to 40 percent. Sufficient data were not available to quantify channel area response following construction of a single downdrift jetty., 1981-10)
