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.
