Abstract: Dividing flows are most common in open channel flow in hydraulic engineering system. Turbulent flows are most common through lateral intakes adjoining rivers and canals. Lateral intakes are used for the distribution of water for irrigation system, power plant, public supply etc. Sedimentation remains the most prominent problem in and around the intake structures in water diversion engineering. Sediment entering the water conveyance system leads to reducing the effective length of the waterway and also the closure of entrances of intake structures. Diversion works or intake works are structures provided to draw in water from the main river or channel into conveyance systems for meeting different uses such a irrigation, drinking water requirements etc. In the present study, experimental and numerical modelling study has been made to model an intake at 450 and velocity is measured experimentally. These velocities are then compared with the velocity obtained using the FLUENT software in the main and branch channel along with the junction point. The study shows good agreement between the numerical simulation and experimental data. And found the variation in separation zone at different discharge ratio and compare with the separation zone which is found by the previous study around 900 water intakes.
