Synopsis:

The course focuses on the design of steel water structures. The lectures cover the following topics:

Loading of water structures. Steel in water engineering, profiles used and minimum dimensions, connections. Design of structural elements subjected to tension, compression, bending. Stability of sections subjected to bending, torsion. Combination of stresses in the section. Stability of cross-sections loaded in bending and pressure. Torsional stability - beam buckling, wall buckling. Principles of design of covering plates with high and low stiffness. Load bearing systems of gates. Basic types of gates used and their design principles. Design of reservoirs and special structures - pipelines of large dimensions and gradients.

Requirements:

Knowledge from previous studies in hydraulics, elasticity and strength, steel structures is assumed.

Syllabus of lectures:

1 - Loading of water structures. Hydrostatic and hydrodynamic pressure, methods of determination.

2 - Types of steels, steel elements in water engineering. Classification of cross-sections subjected to bending stresses and its influence on the design of structural elements.

3 - Recapitulation of basic stress cases in steel cross-sections, stress combinations, stress stacking.

4 - Design of large diameter steel pipelines, feeders.

5 - Design of slender and tall beams.

6 - Stability of cross-sections subjected to bending stresses. Torsional stability - beam buckling, wall plate buckling.

7 - Design of segmental gate arms.

8 - Principles of design of covering plates with high and low stiffness.

9 - Design of secondary reinforcements.

10 - Support systems for single gates. Design and optimization of the placement of main beams. Load transfer and load combinations.

11 - Principles of design of simple gate structures. Navigation lock chamber gates.

12 - Principle of design of simple gate structures. Lifting sluice and lifting segment.

13 - Principle of design of simple lock structures. Tubular and hollow flap gate, hydrostatic gates (segment, sector).

Syllabus of tutorials:
