Fish ladders: Dimensions

This tool is an aid for dimensioning the basins of a pass: it allows to calculate the missing value of the four quantities:

  • the volume of water (\(V\)) in m3;
  • the mean draught \((Y_{mean}\)) in m;
  • the length of the basin (\(L\)) in m;
  • the width of the basin (\(B\)) in m.

The calculation is carried out by applying the formula:

\[V = Y_{mean} \times L \times B\]
