The experiment study was made to optimize the design of a pumping forebay. The Combined-sills were made in the forebay to eliminate the circulation and vortices of the diffusing flow successfully. The Numerical simulation of three-dimensional turbulent flow is applied on the complicate fore-and-aft flow of sills. The computational results are compared with the measurement results of physical model. The calculated results are in good agreement with the experimental data. The flow pattern is obviously improved. The study results have been applied in the project which gives a uniform approach flow to the pumping sump.
