The Hydraulic Characteristics of Hinged Flap Gates
The paper reports an experimental programme to investigate the hydraulic energy losses associated with simple hinged flap gates, sometimes referred to as ‘tide-flaps’. The graphical results presented, for models of a circular gate, illustrate in particular the influence of the weight of the gate on the energy losses created by the flow constriction.
