Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This volume presents an overview of a series of reports dealing with horizontally framed miter gates and their performance. The John Hollis Bankhead Lower Miter Gate on the Black Warrior River, Alabama, a typical and representative structure, was the subject of this in-depth study. Parts II, III, and IV include commentaries on the separate reports addressing conventional horizontally framed gates, elastic buckling of girders, alternate gate configurations, and different methods of controlling the torsional stiffness of a gate leaf. Appendix A is composed of the introductions and conclusions of the six separate reports. These reports are the basis for much of the information presented in Parts II, III, and IV. The authors of Parts II, III, and IV are associated with the US Army Corps of Engineer Districts, Mobile and Seattle, and the Southwestern Division. The six reports included in Appendix A were written by three members of the faculty of the Georgia Institute of Technology. NOTE: This file is large.
