The dynamic response of gates of hydraulic structures caused by passing flow poses a potential threat to flood defence safety. Complex interactions between the turbulent flow and the suspended gate body may induce undesired vibrations, a process that is not readily assessed or captured in design rules. Christiaan Erdbrink’s PhD thesis seeks to contribute a better understanding and prevention of the gate vibration problem by building on previous research and proposing new solution approaches.
