Technical Engineering and Design Guides, as adapted from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, No. 21

This guide provides a framework for the structural design of closure structures for openings in levees and floodwalls of inland local flood protection projects.

Topics include:

  • design requirements for aluminum and steel stoplog closure structures;
  • design requirements for steel swing, miter, trolley, and rolle gate closure structures;
  • design and selection of closure types, focusing on structural analyses, appurtenant components, and corrosion protection;
  • design provisions for operational, functional, maintenance, aesthetics, safety, security, construction, and economic considerations;
  • design process and coordination;
  • facilities requiring closures;
  • closure structure types;
  • stress, loading, and design analysis criteria;
  • gate operating equipment;
  • seal assemblies;
  • embedded metals; and
  • corrosion protection criteria.
