Abstract:

A step-by-step procedure is presented for analyzing and designing tainter gate hydraulic structures by a general purpose, structural analysis and design computer system. The ICES STRUDL II computer system is selected for use since it is the only general purpose, structural computer program that has all the necessary characteristics to perform the analysis and design. The method considers the effects of the hoisting cables, side seal friction, trunnion pin friction, and sidesway constraint limit. The STRUDL approach described herein is arranged for maximum utility of the approach in a design office environment. The use of the FASTDRAW2 interactive graphics system is also described in step-by-step detail.
