Abstract : The report presents results of tests to investigate the effect of the relative position of the filling valves and port manifold on lock filling characteristics in a sidewall port system for a 110- by 1200-ft lock. These tests are supplemental to generalized tests on a lock of this size (Cannelton Main Lock, Ohio River).
