Abstract:

In the development and modernization of navigation facilities on the inland waterways of the United States of America extensive use is being made of the tainter or radial gate. Spillway gates capable of passing flow either over or under the same gate are in use at several projects. Also, the majority of the lock culvert valves are radial gates with the concave side of the gate toward the reservoir. This paper discusses recent model and prototype observations of oscillations of radial gates when used in these two types of installations.
