This paper presents a procedure for the analysis and design of tidal exchange structures, such as tidal gates and training dikes. In lieu of over generalized theories or complicated modeling techniques, the procedure employs basic hydraulic and sediment transport principles to evaluate the tidal exchange and tidal inundation potentials. This includes development of Model TIGATE to simulate tidal flow dynamics and introduction of a sediment flushing index to identify the sediment flushing capability of the tidal flow.
