Abstract : Lock and Dam No. 4 is the fourth lock in a series of five to be constructed on the Red River Waterway from the vicinity of Old River to Shreveport, LA. Lock 4 is located in a cutoff canal on the left descending bank about 169 post project river miles above the mouth of the Red River. The principal structures include an 84- by 785-ft lock, a gated spillway containing five tainter gates, and a hinged crest gate 100 ft wide. The fixed bed model reproduced about 3.5 miles of realigned river channel and adjacent overbank area at an undistorted model scale of 1:100. The model investigation was concerned with determining the effects on navigation through the study reach for the proposed design and developing modifications required to the design that would provide satisfactory navigation conditions.
