Overview: Contact Behavior of Lock Gates and Other Hydraulic Closures

This book presents research results, investigations and field experiences on contact-related behavior of hydraulic closures, such as gates of locks, weirs, movable flood barriers, shipyard and harbor docks. The subject is discussed in an interdisciplinary manner. Presented are design loads, tribological and other phenomena significant for the design and maintenance of gares and their contact components, as well as the impact of those phenomena on the type selection and design processes. The solutions and references originate from the author's experience in engineering, research and management of water related projects, particularly hydraulic gates. Predominate part of this experience was collected in his function of chief engineer for infrastructural projects by the Civil Engineering Department of the Dutch Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management. In addition to the author's own solutions, some latest projects of his colleagues in the Netherlands and abroad have shortly been discusseed. This book is an updated and extended version of the doctoral thesis defended in 2005 on the Gdansk University of Technology.

  1.  Helpful for study and practice in hydraulic engineering 14 November, 2013 On Junglee.com
    Some fields of technology are barely represented on the book market. One of them is the design and engineering of hydraulic structures, like navigation locks, river weirs, movable flood barriers, shipyard docks etc. After all, such structures are not constructed as frequently as, e.g., office buildings or bridges. Yet, they play a very significant role in our lives, helping navigation, global trade, river management or contributing to the security of our lands.
    The book “Contact behavior of lock gates…” should, therefore, be recommended to any professional or student who has chosen this field of technology as his/her business. It handles just those issues that make the closures of hydraulic plants different from other large steel structures. Their contact behavior is indeed brought into focus, but the author also presents their types, systems, performances and the ways to make the best choices while designing, purchasing or managing such structures. Many discussed projects – most of them from the Netherlands, but some also e.g. from the US, Panama, Germany and Belgium – illustrate the conclusions. This book can be a valuable support for an engineer.
