Abstract:

This paper is concerned with the flow of an inviscid, incompressible fluid under a sluice gate. The problem is approached on the basis of the two-dimensional theory of a directed fluid sheet developed recently by Green, Laws and Naghdi. In the context of this theory, the appropriate jump conditions at the sluice gate are discussed and the exact solution is obtained for the region on each side of the gate. Also discussed is the relationship of the solution obtained to previous treatments of the same problem. Author
