Generally, empirical equation is widely being used in few decades by the engineer in designing an open channel system. The prediction of water surface elevation in open channel is quite important in order to evaluate and to determine the required sidewalls height of the channel. However, determining the depth of flow is complicated by side inflows and boundary features with existing of transition structure such contractions, expansions, curves, weir and obstructions. This study is objected to predict the properties of flow beneath a sluice gate using physical model to analyze the profile of water surface around the sluice gate. As the results of analysis, some graphs have been provided to present the relationship among flow rate, flow depth, gate opening and specific energy with indication that the flow rate and the opening of gate are the most important parameters to form the profile of water surface of flow beneath a sluice gate.
