Dynamic force on a closing mitre gate

      I'm looking at the design forces acting on a vertically hinged mitre gate for flow control in a canal, (open channel flow).  We know the maximum volumetric flow rate of the water flow when the gate is closing.  How can I estimate the maximum force exerted on the gate as the water causes it to slam shut.
