Red River Floodway Collection

  • CA UMASC MSS 60 (A1990-063)
  • Fonds
  • 1962-1972

This collection presents the University's role in the design and testing of the inlet and outlet models for the floodway. This collection contains a variety of formats, including film, photographs, correspondence, and test sheets.

For the most part, the correspondence in this collection is from R. L. Walker to Professor E. Kuiper. From January 26, 1962, to October 1, 1962, correspondence was exchanged with regard to testing procedures, ordering of supplies, staff overtime, and construction recommendations. Although a number of weekly reports were sent by Marshall Gysi (engineer in charge at the University of Manitoba) to R. L. Walker (project engineer at H. G. Acres), the collection does not include any of Mr. Gysi's copies of the reports.

The records relating to the plans and original data sheets of the Red River Floodway model designs span the period from November 1, 1961 to February 13, 1963. The construction and purpose of the inlet model are documented, as well as such information as examples of test data sheets. Also included is a data sheet containing the light and exposure information used in the photographs of the models. The material encompassing this section details the construction of the models and includes information on the rating curve, sketch, and contour plans.

Test data for the inlet and outlet models are supplied in the form of test data sheets, sketches of the models on the Red River, velocity cross-sections and photographs, extending from January 22 to October 4, 1962. The correspondence included with this section is useful because it details the testing procedures for the outlet model and all four stages of the inlet model. In addition, the results of the tests highlight this section.

The drawings in this collection depict topographical detail, inlet and outlet models in their various stages of testing, and the hydraulics laboratory at the University.

All the photographs and films were made between 1962-1963. These are black-and-white photos depicting various tests on the models. The 16mm films are also black-and-white, and show current testing and ice flow studies. They are silent films with a running time of approximately five minutes each.

The Red River Floodway Collection is a valuable source of information for researchers studying the design and construction of this flood control device. Although a number of weekly reports is missing, there is enough information to allow the researcher a clear picture of the trials and results brought by the efforts of the Civil Engineering Department. The photographs are an excellent visual source of information as well as a companion to the meticulous drawings.
