Inland Navigation: Channel Training Works presents design guidance on structures that reshape a river channel to create reliable depths and widths for safe and dependable vessel transit. This Manual of Practice (MOP) focuses on training structures used in open-river channels with flow in one direction (non-tidal), and many of the structures are also appropriate for use on low-head (no reservoir storage capacity) lock-and-dam river systems. It describes in detail the proper use of dikes and revetments and explains how to design channel dimensions and alignment so that little or no maintenance dredging is required.Topics include:sediment management in river channelsevolution of training works in the United Statestraining structure types and layoutdikesrevetmentsother types of training workscase studiescostsenvironmental designmodel studiesperformance evaluation and inspectionrepair techniquesIncludes a glossary and a reprint of a 1991 paper on an analytical method to determine dike length.MOP 124 is a key reference for navigation engineers working on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers projects or in the private sector, as well as state and local government officials charged with managing river systems.
