Abstract: When using a lock for purposes other than navigation, water must flow through the chamber. Miter gates are not suitable in such a case. The gates must serve in the same way as for a spillway. The reconstruction of an old lock, situated between the Danube River and the Danube Canal near Vienna, is described. The new mutipurpose structure is equipped with turnable lifting gates and has stilling basins built into the floor.
