Automatic sliding gate is a control structure which can work by its self without an operator. The application of automatic sliding gate is wide; however one of the most important applications is for controlling flood and inundation problems in flat urban area which are caused by backwater from the main-drain/river that flows back to the drainage area. Currently, the automatic sliding gate equipped with pump, sensor and motor is being constructed in a scaled physical model in the Laboratory of Fluid Mechanics of UTHM. This model will be used to find the effectiveness of the mechanism of automatic sliding gate to control backwater.
