Abstract:

This report is the users manual for the CMITER-LRFD computer program, which is used to design and investigate horizontally framed miter gates with the skin plate in the upstream flange, using the load and resistance factor design criteria LRFD. LRFD criteria offer more uniform reliability and a possibility of economy that is achieved in the design process. CMIER-LRFD is organized into three distinct functions the Recommended Design Module RECDES, which performs calculations that will help to establish meaningful values required to start the design the Design Module DES, which performs calculations to design a gate leaf and the Investigation Module INV, which can be used to investigate an existing gate leaf or to verify a design. This report presents results of RECDES, DES, and INV modules for an example of a structure originally designed using allowable stress design criteria.
