IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

A simple method for lock gates leakage measurement
Author : DIDIER BOUSMAR(1) & GIL ZORZAN(2)
ABSTRACT
Water consumption at locks is a major part in the water budget of an artificial waterway. Water losses due to leakage at
lock gates and/or valves can be significant for aging structures. These losses need to be estimated, for both global water
resources planning, and local maintenance works scheduling. The location of such leaks makes it difficult for direct
discharge measurement. An indirect measurement method has therefore been developed and tested. This method is
based on volumetric recording in the lock chamber itself. Several field tests demonstrated the validity of this approach and
highlighted his advantages and weaknesses.
