Sluice gates:how to set structure with downward opening

Hello everyone! I would like to ask, who knows how to set the downward gate (b in the figure 2.png).This type is clearly stated in the EE manual, but I did not find this type during use.(I want to achieve the effect of Figure 3.)have a nice day!

Hello Wang hp,You can simulate a gate like this by using a time variable or rule-based hydraulic structure in which the “sill elevation” is varied.Please have a look at the following page and keep an eye out for the parts of the interface where you can modify the “sill elevation”: can specify and variable sill elevation by using either a time series or a rule. So that choice depends on what you know about the operation of your gate.Let me know if you have any more questions.Tom

thanks a lot ! I understand what you mean, very helpful, thank you again!

I am attempting to implement this same approach for modeling a proposed crest gate atop a modified dam structure. However, EEMS v10.0 is indicating the following error when loading qcrules.inp:Error: Invalid lookup table index 0 defined in control rules for EastSpillway1I actually get this error 3 times, once per trigger in my operating rule. Here is the content of the qcrules.inp file (spacing is compressed here, but fine in the .inp file):* LEVEL STATE HEIGHT WIDTH SILL UNITS FLOW RATE IDX 0 3 0 0 1 0 0 0 !

EastSpillway1I have tried toggling on/off most of the settings in qcrules.inp, and I have tried inverting the order of the triggers in the table.I suspect the solution is pretty simple, but it’s not clear to me exactly which field(s) the error message is referencing. Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.Thank you,Justin BartlettHouston, TX

A colleague and I were able to solve this. Two errors in the inputs:C23 - NQCTL should have been 5, not 10C32 - NQCTLQ should have been 0In qcrules.inp, I have also set IDX values to zero.My colleague also directed me to the Demonstration Models on your site. DM-22 was particularly applicable to elevation-based gate controls.Thanks for making those available for download,Justin BartlettHouston, TX
