Unavailable 13-23 April 2018: migration to new platform
On Friday, 13 April, we will start migrating to a new platform.
During the migration it will not be possible to login to oss.deltares.nl.
You can still see all content but you will not be able to edit or post in
the forums or to create/edit an account.
Access to SVN will still be available via https://svn.oss.deltares.nl.
We expect to be able to go live on the new platform by Monday, 23 April.

What is LOCKFILL?
LOCKFILL is a quick tool developed by Deltares, enabling the assessment of a shipping lock's performance, in terms of levelling times, forces on vessels and flow velocities on the approach harbour bed.
LOCKFILL computes the longitudinal forces on the ship which are caused by translatory waves, momentum variation, skin friction, the filling jet and a water density difference, based on a one-dimensional approach. The program allows the calculation of various filling and emptying systems in the heads of the lock, e.g. openings in the lock gates, pipes through the gates fitted with butterfly valves, lifting gates or short culverts in the lock head walls.
