Abstract This paper presents the results of a detailed analysis of competing designs of rolling gates and floating radial gates for the Leningrad flood control system and describes from a hydraulic engineering standpoint those aspects of the gate designs which led to the conclusion that they did not have sufficient reliability for the loads encountered under flood conditions. Specific design revisions which take into account not only the flood loads but also the navigation and dock parts of the structures were investigated and recommended.
