Tom Gill and Brent Mefford. 2010. "Physical Hydraulic Model Proposal for US Army Corps of Engineers Missouri River Bend Model". Bureau of Reclamation, Report Number HL-2010-05.

Abstract: In mid 2009, the US Army Corps of Engineers Omaha District (COE) asked the Hydraulic Investigations and Laboratory Services Group of the US Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) to consider whether they had the capabilities and resources to conduct a large scale physical hydraulic model study of one or more selected reaches of the Missouri River. From preliminary information supplied, Reclamation engineers determined that physical space and flow rate requirements for the desired model scale would exceed in-house capabilities of the hydraulics laboratory facility in Denver, Colorado. Reclamation agreed to perform a preliminary feasibility study to examine potential for performing the model study at an external location. Sites to be considered would include irrigation district facilities and possibly laboratory facilities of other entities. This proposal documents the findings from Reclamation’s feasibility study.
