Software development and experimental investigation for the calculation of stability of overturning gates


Duration: January 2013–December 2014

Commissioned by: Raycap S.A.

Contractor: Department of Water Resources and Environmental Engineering

The project aims to provide a methodological framework to calculate the stability of overturning safety gates (Raygates) of given geometry (straight, labyrinth). The methodology is based on theoretical, numerical and experimental analyses, and is implemented within a software package.
