In engineering construction, the design of sluice often appears; the check gate (also known as regulating sluice) is one of a common kinds of sluice. This article will concentrate on the check gate in Wu Village and give an example to introduce its layout, downstream energy dissipation and anti-scour and stability of locker chamber, which provides the basis and reasons for the design of small- and medium-sized check gates.
