Office memorandum dated Jan 20, 1956 to Harbeck from CC McDonald on “ASCE paper by RE Glover re arch dams states:

“As paper will draw entirely on non-survey knowledge and experience the director’s approval will not be required.” Also: “It will be necessary of course, to obtain the approval of the Director for attendance at the June meeting whether or not survey funds are used to pay any expense involved.”

Memo dated Jan 19, 1956 to Harbeck from CC McDonald Washington DC on the subject: Mr Glover’s discussion of paper states: “Returned herewith is Glover’s discussion of paper ‘Flow into a well by electric and membrane analogy’ Since this paper would otherwise require review in the ground water branch, we suggest that Mr Glover delete the survey reference. He may then go ahead and submit the paper directly. We think this would be satisfactory because the paper obviously refers to a subject that is not a part of his present assignment. . . . .”

Mr Wilkins called about 1:00 PM this afternoon to say they could do the job for $150.00. I told him he could go ahead.

Mr Wilkins suggested 20 gage as preferable for the trough and black pipe 1 in dia nominal for the shaft. He will rivet and solder the end baffles as lb or 20 gage is too thin to weld. He will also make the baffles on oriole the pipe to get better welding. Purchase order number 22058-56 name is William P Wilkins. REG

High wind blew all night. Glover, Daum, and Dasil Hallmark began work at the A [and] M Hydraulic Lab at 8:00 AM. Glover and Daum installed and connected up electrodes and installed the bough to release salt. Hallmark assisted by abstaining scales plants etc of needed and operating flume. Bob Staley

assisted in the afternoon reading gages and operating the flume. There was trouble with moisture in the elements of the oscillograph and some sort of conducting particles. After elements were blown out with compressed air, operation was better. The pumps have been overhauled and now deliver 8-5 ft3/sec. This was enough to flood part of the lab. Hallmark and Staley had to reduce the level in the pump to stop the trouble. One record was run and developed which slowed operation approximately as intended but the velocity in the flume would make continuing running preferred with this quantity of [illegible]. Trips were made to town to get a measure and ladle to handle the [illegible] solution and to get photographs developed and fixed. Dinner about 45 cents supper $2.04. Hallmark worked about one day. Staley about ½ day. REG

Wednesday, March 28, 1956

C.R. Daum, Glover, D. Hallmark, E. Plane, R. Staley worked on diffusion tests. Tests run on longitudinal diffusion and lateral diffusion with 2 cubic test per second flow. It is very difficult to release salt at a point without creating lateral velocities due to differences in level inside and outside of the pipe. A siphon was used to equalize levels in test No 11 but without completely over earning the difficulty which may be due to different density of fresh and salt water. It will be better to use continuing inspection of salt to measure the lateral diffusion rate. REG 3-29-56

his knee on a brace of the flume. Bandage applied to cut. Mr Harbeck arrived about 10:00 AM bringing with him Messrs R. Dexter, Shuster and Carlson of the Bureau of Reclamation. Lateral diffusion tests were completed and the oscillograph put in the box. Mr Daum took time for repairs. Orifice is to be changed over the week and to obtain the lower velocities needed to complete the longitudinal diffusion tests. Mr Daum drove to Boulder. Mr Glover drove on to Denver and returned the station wagon G2-129 to the garage at the federal center at about 4 PM. REG Mar 31 1956

Monday, April 2, 1956

Went to office at Federal Center by bus, arriving before 7:30 AM. Talked over progress of work with Mr Harbeck and had car brought from garage. Went to house to pick up suitcase and briefcase and left home about 9:15 AM. Left Denver about 9:45 AM. Arrived at Ft Collins about 11:15 AM. Messrs Daum and E Plate had water running in the flume. We made runs at 1.0 and 0.5 ft3/sec flow, but found salinity of water to be too high to get good results. Water will be changed tonight and the runs will be repeated in the morning. Went to White Motor Court and took cabin No 2 after buying salt $1.03 and

photographic supplies (developer, $1.29) REG

Note: E Plate assisted in the morning and D Hallmark after about 2:00 PM. REG Dean Evans visited the test flume. REG

Tuesday, April 3, 1956

RE Glover and CR Daum worked at A and M Hydraulic lab. The water in the sump had been changed during the night and the bar roughness had been re-installed. Tests on the 8 foot wide flume were completed. In the afternoon a letter was received from Mr Harbeck directing RE Glover to get a Ford pickup truck from the Steve’s Garage at 207 LaPorte St, Fort Collins and to pay the repair bill of about $350 using a SF 44. The bill of $318.45 was paid in this way and Mr Daum and I bought the Ford truck No 1-40909 back to the A [and] M Campus. Copies of the SF 44 forms were forwarded with a letter to Mr Harbeck in the evening. In the afternoon work was begun on the task of narrowing the flume from 8 feet to 4 feet in width. The water in the sump will be changed also. REG 4-4-56

Wednesday, April 4, 1956

The wall which reduces the width of the test flume to 4 feet was ready for use somewhere around 2:00 PM. It had been tested earlier and some leaks had been found. Messrs Daum and Glover had completed the electrode and bough installation earlier. The tests on the 4 foot wide channel were completed at 4:59 PM. A call to Mr Harbeck in the morning suggested a way of getting the Ford pickup truck to Denver. A later call from Mr Harbeck conveyed the information that the truck would be picked up by a third party tomorrow for a trip to Riverton. Mr Harbeck did not object to deleting the tests on the 2’x2’ channel if the tests on the 4 foot wide channel gave satisfactory data. Inquiry of Dr Albertson as for the contact brought out that it had been signed and sent to Denver. Mr Daum drove to Boulder but will be back in the morning. RE Glover returned to his lab to get the last roll of oscillograph records for study in the evening. Envelope with time and attendance cards were mailed, attention Mr Harbeck, this evening at the Post Office. REG


Note: Fresh water had been put in the sump and the orifice had been changed this morning. REG Thursday, April 5, 1956

Found Mr Daum at lab when I arrived a little before 8:00 AM. Called Mr Harbeck shortly after 8 AM. Instructed to leave the Ford truck but bring on set of keys to Denver. Mr Daum parked the truck as directed by Dasil Hallmark. After talking to Harbeck I talked to Hallmark and Asmus about changing the flume for the 2 foot wide tests. Their thought was that it would not be difficult as all the material was at hand. So CR Daum, D Hallmark, Asmus and I changed the flume and reinstalled the electrodes. This work was finished about noon. In the afternoon I checked by records with D Hallmark records while Dr

Albertson was present. We then ran five tests on the flume which we had adjusted to a 20 inch width and depth to forestall the possibility of overflow. These tests were completed about 2 PM. Then Daum, Hallmark and I packed the equipment in the truck. Daum left for Boulder and I left for Denver about 4 PM. I arrived at my home in Denver at 6:10 PM. REG

Long distance telephone call to Dasil Hallmark at the Hydraulic Laboratory at the A [and] M College at Fort Collins, Colorado. The “datum” of the point gages is the floor of the flume. EKG linegraph paper In determining the zero point elevation for the scale of the manometers, a rod reading is first taken on a nail driven into a cross member of the stationary part of the manometer gage frame and a reading is then taken on the nail with the manometer gage cross wire. (the zero of the scale is 0.377 feet below the nail).

A difference of about .015 feet has been observed between manometer tube readings when a part of them are treated with an aerosol. Mr Hallmark thinks therefore that a 0.020 foot difference, due to capillarity in the manometer tubes, as between water depths determined by manometer and point gage readings is reasonable. (The manometer readings should give the greater water depth) REG
