This paper summarizes the development of sliding gate in tigray region, mekelle, Ethiopia. Research work deals design and develop of new gate mechanism for diversion dams that alleviate the operational and structural failure problems. Systematic product development was followed to manage the different phases, from collecting and compiling information about the target market and users; to idea generation and realisation of concepts. The basic criteria used for generating concepts are ease ofopening mechanism, assembly and maintainability. Detail analysis was done by calculation and CFD and ANSYS. The developed gate has new features which makes it superior over the existing mechanism.

Keywords: Dam, gate, gate plate, cost, pressure distribution, ANSYS, CFD, GAMBIT, FLUENT
