WinGate is software designed to calibrate canal check gates for flow measurement. WinGate can analyze radial gates and slide gates. The current version is WinGate 0.28_beta, updated 03/27/13. Primary funding for WinGate's development has come from the Bureau of Reclamation Science & Technology Program and the Salt River Project.

WinGate applies the Energy-Momentum (E-M) method to compute gate ratings. Primary documentation for this method is contained in Clemmens et al. (2003) and Wahl (2005). New improvements to the E-M algorithms are included in this release, and these are documented in the two conference papers from 2012 [see references listed below].
