ERDC researchers test designs for lock improvements along the Upper Ohio River
Researchers at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center are using a 1:100 scale navigation approach model to test designs for a new auxiliary lock structure for the Montgomery Lock on the Ohio River. The model will help evaluate guard wall lengths in relation to navigation conditions as well as how safely a vessel can navigate into the lock on both sides. (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers photo)
