Abstract

The Bhatghar dam is having 81 vertical lift gates (fixed wheel type) on waste ways. The design of these gates is so beautiful and based on simple principles of science and engineering that these gates outlast for 100 years without failure, performing their intended purpose satisfactorily. It is achieved by meticulous design, manufacturing, erection, subsequent use and maintenance practices. It has become guiding and inspiration for further practices in design, manufacturing, erection, and maintenance for dam gates as well as all other disciplines of engineering today.
