In the design of locks, sill, and chamber depths affect (a) the ability of tows to enter/exit the lock, (b) the safety of entry/exit, (c) delays related to ice, and (d) the required entry/exit time. The primary issue in establishing sill and chamber depths is the cost of reduced project benefits for excessive entry/exit time. This study provides entry and exit times for a range of sill depths and tow configurations.
