Abstract : The flow under a sluice gate at different Froude numbers is calculated approximately, using an integral equation method of G. Birkhoff and E. H. Zarantonello. Calculated values for the contraction coefficient are presented. Integral equations are also obtained characterizing three other ideal steady plane flows in a uniform gravity field: the jet from a slot, the flow over a sharp-crested weir, and the flow over a flat sill.
