  1. Incorrect thread. Sorry t is happening this year, The CORPS is sending a design for a $1 billion diversion and it is the one I am referring to. I suggest the Tidal Pulsing to minimize wash away of the marshes. Our Governor has expedited the design with overtime engineering and construction. My concept may help and the CPRA (Coastal Restoration and Restoration Authority) thanked me for the suggestion. http://coastal.la.gov/ To be seen ff Tidal Pulsing is used.
  2. Thanks, please see some pictures attached. I should have stated "the loss of marshes from New Orleans to the Gulf of Mexico about 30 miles wii cost $1Trillion in habitat loss which also includes commercial and sport fishing. Are there any flaws in my concept? Published reference: Could Mississippi River diversions cause land loss instead of land gain? https://www.nola.com/news/environment/article_477955f7-0112-5811-83ad-96263bcd46f7.html My site with more information; Wild Marshes Will Survive , Roll Down 60 % Part 3 https://mhiparish.webs.com/about Please see link for pictures and more information. Marshes are transformed to open sea. Wash away is a term used by ones against diversions as planned. This has happened in a small test diversion when 40 square miles of marsh washed away after hurricane Katrina hit the coast of Louisiana. Mississippi River diversions led to land loss, not growth, study says: Implications are 'obvious' https://www.nola.com/news/environment/article_a1df60ba-c05d-11e9-bf17-d70dd5dd90dc.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=user-share&fbclid=IwAR0pywQA68UN2fGvRdrH0Kv6hQ_XAzIhO96jl5WlqL1e6uUoIfkT4dX1irs/
  3. Thanks but far over my head (I am an engineer but did not have fluid mechanics). Back to my original question, I probably have resigned to there is not an answer as you have shared.
  4. It is about a vision not an imagination. As far as what I posted, I am trying to share about me but it is not about me. More: In 2019 I discovered what is considered an important Revolutionary War Fort location and drawing not known for 200 years. The head Louisiana Archeologist commended me for the discovery. My site showing the Fort of Baton Rouge is below. God directed me to this drawing and placed in motion the discovery. It is about God who does his will thru His. An International Cultural Landmark Needing Identification and Legal Protection Preventing Future Development, Newly Discovery "The Fort of Baton Rouge" Roll Down 30% Part 2 https://mhiparish.webs.com/about Want to know about my research to save marshes in Louisiana from $1 Trillion destruction?
  5. I, as a dumb college student, went there and walked on the wing, the next week it collapsed.
  6. It is the Auxiliary Structure (linked from your link) in the first picture and in the background is the failed low sill structure in 1973.https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/If-Old-River-Control-Structure-Fails-Catastrophe-Global-Impact Your link https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=failure+of+old+river+control+structure&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=ftZcfe0bK17l7M%2CRRxDk-YnG3761M%2C_&vet=1&usg=AI4_-kTt_zi0s8YadwIFHcgXfndAvIoFOA&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjCiKyRmaLqAhVyVBUIHUVIDbgQ_h0wAHoECAUQBA&biw=1366&bih=646#imgrc=wdhLniFoa9rB9M There may be reverse flow if the river is low but there is little energy because the river is low. At high river low, flow thru the auxiliary structure is 10 times flow of Niagara falls My buddy said the eddy currents in the river travels the mile to the Aux structure and is undercutting the structure but as mentioned can't find the video. Did my buddy dream this or did the government delete all documents and videos as to not scare the public? Attached picture of the Low Sill before it failed.
  7. Possible like other suggestions, the only hope is smart ones catch on. Remember this is reality not imagination. My so called imagination engineered two of the world's largest nuclear plants, derived a new method of calculation of Mississippi River hydraulics equations accepted by Tulane University top profesor who is paid by the CORPS to perform hydraulic studies for them, developed horizontal vessel with elliptical end caps volume equation when height is known (40 years ago and copyrighted) now all process studies use the equation, spent 40 years engineering safety critical systems for refineries and chemical plants, but I am only a hobbiest on this subject as most of the others. Everything I do is doubted by many but almost always comes to pass. I am a "f.....g Genus" according to a different Tulane professor, I thought that was funny.
  8. Preliminary. 5 stars grading w/ a 1 star less safe than a 5 star for quick review then quantity of systems, then listing of systems with one sentence description. Link to the full description as already posted by CDC. Very little work for the hospital because everything is already defined, only a matter of Federal law requiring all hospitals fill the HSDS form.
  9. I suspect a water flow lab can model an eddie but keeping the eddie in essentially a location would be a challenge. This is what happened when the old structure right wing fell in the 1973 flood. Roll down below 50% for the eddy which undercut the structure. America's Achilles' Heel: the Mississippi River's Old River Control Structure https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/Americas-Achilles-Heel-Mississippi-Rivers-Old-River-Control-Structure I call it an eddie but not sure, I am only an hobbyist on this subject.
  10. I would think for the public to understand the Hospital air safety systems of hospital comparisons an HSDS is sufficient. Then one can quickly look at a large variety of hospitals in my area and make a comparison. Even a program sharing comparisons can be an good app. The MSDS is only an example and an HSDS can be similar in some ways. HSDS could have a grade for each hospital, Safety systems callouts, etc. and should be very simple for the public to understand.
  11. Many of my friends fully understand MSDS sheets. Please review with some you know. Thanks for sharing.
  12. Please review and comment. Louisiana marshes are destined to be washed away by Mississippi River Diversions. Talked to CPRA (Coastal Protection Restoration Authority) and they agree the marshes will wash away for 40 years because fertilizers from the river will feed marshes with plant having shorter roots and hurricanes will wash them away. Also talked to the CORPS and they do not know what will happen and asked me to share my concept with CPRA. Below pictures show different aspects of my concept and the Diversion Master Plan has thanked me for sharing the concept. Basically, the concept sends diversion waters to open waters west of the river when tides are decreasing and the diversion will stay in the waters and not flow into marshes. When tides are increasing diversion will be closed preventing diversion water from entering the marshes.
  13. Supposedly the CORPS were using marine concrete and this will hopefully prevent undercutting the structure, kind of scary.
  14. Called one of the largest hospitals in my area and they mentioned they could give me their maintenance crew and that would work but for the public a HSDS sheet on line would be easy to review. That way the public could easily compare different Hospitals.
