Question
how to design the length of pier of gated regulator in irrigation canal

Answer
Dear Kalutage

2 main concepts govern the pier length. The rock level / The interconnectionfriction between soil and concrete ( or any material you are using). If no friction can be considered you will be forced to lengthen the pier to reach the rock ( or stiff material) level.
