[en] This paper presents a methodology to minimize the weight of the gate by optimizing
simultaneously the height of the floating tanks, the number of their watertight partitions and the
gate scantling while considering the floating stability (Richir et al. 2006)
The rolling gate, considered for this lock, has to float to be led into the port for maintenance
or repairing operations. Two partitioned floating tanks are used inside the gate. Water ballast
can be pumped from the floating tanks to float the structure or to restore the mass equilibrium in
case of damage due to boat impact.
