Vortices in the flow of a pump sump present an important problem in pump station operation. In the present study, the flow patterns in two model pump sumps with specially designed structures are analyzed using the particle image velocimetry (PIV) technique. The data is analyzed to reveal a number of parameters including the internal flow field with velocity distribution, the streamline distribution, and the turbulent kinetic energy. The analysis certifies that a modified pump with added T-type battle below the surrp exhibits good perforrrance for real istic working conditions.
