Abstract
    When a ship enters a lock with limited side and underkeel clearances it experiences a hydraulic resistance caused by the limited space available for the displaced water to flow past the hull. In consequence the locking operation may take longer than anticipated with the risk of a ship being grounded on the outer sill of the lock on a falling tide. As a result of this three part study ship operators can now predict the time taken to enter a lock under high blockage conditions.
