This report describes a mixed-flow hydraulic transient model for the
Culver-Goodman Tunnel of Rochester, New York. The model is based on the one-dimensional
unsteady partial differential equations for open channels and
closed conduits. These differential equations are solved numerically using
the method of characteristics. Thus, the model is capable of dealing with the
rapidly changing water hammer pressures and surges in a complex system. Hydrographs
at 18 dropshafts due to a 5 year storm are used as the inputs. Outflow
hydrographs, storage, depth or piezometric head, and velocity at 104 stations
at small time intervals are obtained as output.
