ERDC researchers test designs for lock improvements along the Upper Ohio River
Researchers at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center constructed a model of the filling and emptying system of the Montgomery Lock on the Ohio River to test designs for a new auxiliary lock structure. The model allows the team to take a closer look at the details inside the lock, like the intakes, the culvert layout, the outlets and valve operation times. (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers photo)
