Abstract : The Fort Smith reach of the Arkansas River, located in the Lock and Dam No. 13 pool, includes the mouth of the Poteau River and is crossed by two bridges 850 ft apart. An undistorted 1:120-scale, semifixed-bed model reproducing approximately 4 miles of the Arkansas River and adjacent overbank and the lower 2 miles of the Poteau River was used to determine the regulating structures and modifications required to develop a channel of project dimensions, and the modifications required to the existing bridges to provide satisfactory navigation conditions through the reach.
