Based on the author's extensive practical experience, this new edition will act as a definitive reference work on gates and valves. Hydraulic gates and valves in free surface flow and submerged outlets: 2nd edition will provide you with a comprehensive overview of the subject and clearly describes the principle options available to engineers and designers and outlines the main advantages and disadvantages of all hydraulic gates and valves, highlighting potential problems in their use. This fully revised edition includes: Information about new types of water-operated automatic gates, rolling weir gates, fuse gates and an extended part on barrier gates and their details The sections on seals, the trunnions of radial gates, ice formation, gate operation and structural design have all been expanded New sections on hazard and reliability of gates, earthquake effects on gates and operating machinery, environmental impact and aesthetics, as well as maintenance An appendix on the calculation of hydrostatic loads on radial gates has been set out Hydraulic gates and valves in free surface flow and submerged outlets: 2nd edition will be of great benefit to engineers who work or design projects which incorporate gates and valves and those who are responsible for the operation of river and reservoir control structures by identifying operational problems.can also occur on the lower horizontal tie member of the gate arms of vertically Structural stiffened skin plates. considerations When a gate ...
