In 1887 Reynolds spoke at the Manchester meeting of the British Association, and proposed that experiments could be conducted ?On Certain Laws Relating to the Regime of Rivers and Estuaries, and on the Possibility of Experiments on a Small Scale'?. The idea was developed through a scale experiment of the Mersey, with tides generated by a hinged tray at the seaward side of the model. Ideas developed from this work showed the possibilities for modelling flow in rivers and estuaries, and it was this fresh work that formed the work examined by the British Association in its three large reports in1889, 1890, and 1891. The research was undertaken by Reynolds in the Whitworth Engineering Laboratory at Owens College, Manchester, and the three Reports were written by Reynolds, describing in great detail the experiments made on model estuaries of hypothetical shape: rectangular, V-shaped, and V-shaped.
