Abstract : Columbia Lock and Dam, proposed for construction on the Chattahoochee River, will provide a navigable pool extending upstream 28.7 miles to the Walter F. George Lock and Dam. The model investigation was concerned with the study of navigation conditions in the lock approaches to determine the adequacy of the proposed design, and with the development of measures to overcome or minimize the effects of any adverse conditions. An undistorted model, scale 1:100, reproducing approximately 1.5 miles of the Chattahoochee River including the lock and dam structure was used for the investigation.
