Lock Gates

The lock gates are provided in navigation chambers to change the water level in a canal or river for navigation. There are two sets of gates, one set on either side of the chamber.

In a lock gate, the reaction between the two gates (R) is given by



where

P = Resultant water pressure on the lock gate, and
a = Inclination of the gate with the normal to the side of the lock.
