Based on the author's thirty-five years of experience, this book describes the principal aspects of the design, manufacture, installation and operation of hydraulic gates. It includes in-depth analyses of topics such as the selection of the gate type, the limits of their use, estimating their weight, operative forces, hoisting systems, design of structure and support elements, seals and hydrostatic and hydrodynamic forces. The author discusses the use of recent technological advances, such as inflatable gates and fusegates. The book features a number of worked examples, drawings, and about 300 photographs and covers several different types of gates and their support elements from a variety of applications.
