  • Floyd Nagler, IIHR’s First Director – IIHR – Hydroscience & Engineering – University of Iowa
    as a major Corps modeling site for Upper Mississippi constructs Nagler also measured the Mississippi s flow over spillways of the Keokuk Dam which early in the century was the world s largest electrical generating plant Floyd Nagler IIHR s founder and first director on the Keokuk Dam Mississippi River He performed the first detailed surveys of many Iowa rivers examining them both in terms of their physical traits and their potential for producing hydroelectric power which he delighted in promoting While tramping along the banks of Eastern Iowa s rivers and streams as he performed these river surveys Nagler eagerly searched for abandoned mills and millstones which fascinated him Legend has it that he would carry these millstones back to his car A pair of Nagler s millstones still preside over the west entrance to Stanley Hydraulics Lab Nagler was a large powerful man who routinely returned from his ambles in the field loaded down with rocks which he used to build a large rock garden at his home with a fountain a waterfall and three interconnected pools Nagler didn t forget the need of Iowans to relax and enjoy nature he performed additional river surveys for the burgeoning Iowa State Park System surveys that identified sites where rivers could be dammed to form recreational lakes Some of his interests and research were remarkably prescient Consider for example his papers on water yield from small watersheds and on Iowa floods as well as his successful efforts to institute a statewide stream gaging program and a long term monitoring system for multiple aspects of flow in the Ralston Creek drainage just east of Iowa City Were he alive today Floyd Nagler s research would still fit in well with the activities of the Iowa Flood Center established at IIHR in 2009 Despite his many responsibilities and efforts Nagler was devoted to his family and his community He included family members in as many of his daily activities as possible taking his young son Robert with him to play at the Hydraulics Lab while he worked and bringing his wife and young children with him to professional meetings and on field exercises whenever possible Outside his own home Nagler was active as a church officer and Sunday School superintendent he also counseled his church s youth and worked with the Boy Scouts Floyd Nagler died unexpectedly in 1933 at age 41 from complications of a burst appendix Looking back at his 13 year tenure at IIHR one wonders how he could have accomplished so much in such a brief time period His legacy certainly attests to his energy and focused attention In addition to leaving behind the physical and organizational structure that identify IIHR today he established the standards of excellence and the traditions of high productivity innovation in research and devotion to problem solving that still characterize IIHR And he commenced certain fields of study that continue to the present day But perhaps most importantly Floyd Nagler created an institution

  • Combining Flows at an Open Channel Junction – IIHR – Hydroscience & Engineering – University of Iowa
    Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter ADV was used to measure velocities and turbulence intensities The velocity measurements were taken at each sampling location for 60 seconds at a sampling rate of 10 Hz The velocity measurements were taken at channel cross sections A channel cross section consisted of seven evenly spaced vertical profiles Depth measurements were made using a point gauge with an accuracy of 0 005 in Data All of the data from these experiments are available The data can be accessed by downloading the file exp data zip The file contains 12 separate data files and a README file Each of the 12 data files were named according to the branch of the flume and the corresponding flow rate at which the data were collected For example the first file is named 05 main indicating that the data were collected in the main branch of the flume at a flow rate of 0 5 cfs The corresponding file would be 55 side This means the data were taken in the side branch of the flume at a flow rate of 5 5 cfs There are six files for the main channel of the flume and six files for the side channel of the flume Each file contains nine columns of data The following is a description of columns 1 9 of the data files Column 1 longitudinal distance from base of upstream corner of junction x direction Column 2 lateral distance from base of upstream corner of junction y direction Column 3 vertical distance from floor of flume z direction Column 4 x component of velocity Column 5 y component of velocity Column 6 z component of velocity Column 7 standard deviation of x component of velocity Column 8 standard deviation of y component of velocity Column 9 standard deviation of z component of velocity Download the data Publications Shumate E D and Weber L J 1998 Experimental Description of Combining Flows at an Open Channel Junction Proceedings of the ASCE Water Resources Engineering 98 Conference pp 1679 1684 Shumate E D 1998 Experimental description of flow at an open channel junction M S Thesis University of Iowa Tags hydraulics Larry Weber Oakdale UI facilities Last modified on June 25th 2015 Posted on September 10th 2012 Home About Greetings from the Director Fact Page IIHR at a Glance Where is IIHR Communications History IIHR s Historical Studies History Resources Hans Albert Einstein His Life as a Pioneering Engineer Sustainability at IIHR Evolving with the Times Intellectual Connections Worldwide IIHR Alumni Worldwide Archives Films by Hunter Rouse Employment Contact IIHR Webcam Education Graduate Program Admission Assistantships and Fellowships Graduate Student Opportunities Undergraduate Opportunities International Perspectives Service Projects Habitat for Humanity s Women Build Project Fluids Lab Meet Our Faculty and Staff Brandon Barquist Talking Shop Pablo Carrica Enjoying the Challenge George Constantinescu Rivers Run in the Family Carrie Davis Playing in the Mud Teresa Gaffey Transformations Anton Kruger How Stuff Works Troy Lyons Bridging the Gap Ricardo Mantilla Going with the

  • Why the Mississippi? – IIHR – Hydroscience & Engineering – University of Iowa
    use merges with a host of competing uses from ensuring fresh water for industry and municipalities to providing habitat for hundreds of non human species These many uses have multiplied both economic gains and ecological costs For example sediments washed from agricultural land are clogging the river s backwaters and destroying fish spawning grounds These sediments and pollutants are harmful to the river s mussels sensitive filter feeders that shut down when waters are too turbulent and sediments are too heavy And agricultural runoff from the Corn Belt contributes dramatically to an oxygen poor Dead Zone in the Gulf of Mexico All these problems are hurting the river basin s natural biodiversity and health Linking Science and Policy An integrated watershed approach is key to linking science and policy for the Mississippi River Any one investigator or single discipline can study only one facet of these complex dilemmas LACMRERS provides the opportunity for multidisciplinary collaborations on the complex problems faced by the Mississippi Through these collaborations researchers can begin to understand large river systems more generally Tags Mississippi River multidisciplinary science Last modified on June 23rd 2015 Posted on June 2nd 2010 Home About Greetings from the Director Fact Page IIHR at a Glance Where is IIHR Communications History IIHR s Historical Studies History Resources Hans Albert Einstein His Life as a Pioneering Engineer Sustainability at IIHR Evolving with the Times Intellectual Connections Worldwide IIHR Alumni Worldwide Archives Films by Hunter Rouse Employment Contact IIHR Webcam Education Graduate Program Admission Assistantships and Fellowships Graduate Student Opportunities Undergraduate Opportunities International Perspectives Service Projects Habitat for Humanity s Women Build Project Fluids Lab Meet Our Faculty and Staff Brandon Barquist Talking Shop Pablo Carrica Enjoying the Challenge George Constantinescu Rivers Run in the Family Carrie Davis Playing in the Mud Teresa Gaffey Transformations Anton Kruger How Stuff Works Troy Lyons Bridging the Gap Ricardo Mantilla Going with the Flow Jacob Odgaard Making an Impact Michelle Scherer Solving the Puzzle Fred Stern Revolutionizing Ship Hydrodynamics Stephanie Surine She s a Rocker Eric Tate Studying the Human Costs of Flooding H S Udaykumar The Reluctant Engineer Gabriele Villarini Working the Numbers Mark Wilson What s Not to Like Meet Our Students Tibebu Ayalew Accidental Engineer Ali Reza Firoozfar The Experimentalist Ruben Llamas Success among Friends Beda Luitel Finding a Way Kara Prior For the Love of Discovery Harvest Schroeder The Human Factor Stephanie Then Like a Duck to Water Meet Our Alumni Jim Ashton Turnaround Guy Maria Laura Beninati The Iowa Embrace Paul Dierking The Inquisitive Engineer Scott Hagen Far from the Farm J V Loperfido Going with the Flow Student Organization SIIHR Contact Us Research The Iowa Nutrient Research Center Iowa Geological Survey The IGS Rock Library Water Sustainability Initiative Water Quality Everyone s Responsibility Water Communication A New Field The Human Costs of Flooding Biofluids Developing a Digital Lung The Dynamics of Heart Valves Metastatic Cancer Cells and Shear Stress Environmental Engineering Science PCBs A Disturbing Legacy and Ongoing Threat Aboard the
