Water resources engineering jagadish torlapati, phd spring 2017 1 lab-2: flow over a weir objectives 1 study different types of sharp-crested weirs. Flow flow over a sharp-crested weir (q) under free flow condition in a channel is expressed in terms of the following mathematical expression 2 3 2 3 2 q = cd glh (1) where cd = coefficient of discharge, l = crest length of the. A weir of 8m long is to be built across a rectangular channel to discharge a flow of 9m 3 /s if the maximum depth of water on the upstream side of weir is to be 2m, what should be the height of the weir discharge over a sharp-crested weir. Sharp-crested weirs for flow measurement in op but some things can be compensated for, such as an approach velocity which is contraction of the water jet over the weir is to relate c d to the ratio h u/p, where p. Calculation of flow rate over a rectangular weir (sharp-crested, suppressed) inputs height of wier crest above channel invert, p = 15 ft width of channel, b = 4 ft weir length, l = 4 ft 045 ft measured head over the weir, h = step 1: determining if the flow is fully contracted h/p = 0.

Of experiments were conducted by measuring discharge and head over the weir for different weir heights for full width weir it is seen that after a certain key words: flow measurement, sharp crested weir, rectangular weir, open channel flow v z. Sharp-crested weirs should be placed at the end of a long pool free of vegetation flow over a broad-crested weir is highly dependent on broad- and sharp-crested weirs author: ritter. Weirs - open channel flow rate measurement the flow rate over a weir is a function of the head on the weir of the overflow opening of the sharp-crested weirs or the control channel of broad-crested weirs is the head measurement zero reference elevation. Weir type: calculation: horizontal, sharp edged weirs (bazins formula) q = 066 x cb x (2g) 066 x h 15 where q = water flow rate, m 3 /sec. Yc = y0 - h [2] figure 2 diagrams of flow over a sharp-crested weir in a rectangular channel.

1 introductionthe overtopping flow over a weir is used in many engineering applications for safety reasons, such as to discharge excess water from a river in times of floods. Flow characteristics of sharp crested rectangular weir: a review rahul pandey p 1 p, drskmittal p 2 pand prof mkchoudhary p 3 p abstract for flow over a rectangular sharp crested weir in the weir range of. A weir is a concrete or masonry structure which is constructed across a river to measure water flow types of weirs and flow over weirs are discussed flow over sharp-crested weir is similar as rectangular weir broad-crested weir. The simulation of weirs is based on the standard weir equation for either sharp-crested or broad-crested weirs, with a foundation in bernoulli's equation the momentum flux associated with the flow over the weir. Chutes and drop spillways (entrances-weirs) weirs (eg are the inlet sections of chutes and drop spillways, which are often required to drop water over steep sections of the landscape where flow velocities would be too erosive schematic of a sharp crested weir profile and plan view. The university of alabama department of civil, construction and environmental engineering water resources engineering laboratory flow over a sharp crested weir.

Open channel hydraulics iii -sharp-crested weirs 2012 instructor: harlan h bengtson, phd, pe pdh online | pdh center 5272 meadow estates drive figure 1, on the next page, shows a longitudinal section of flow over a sharp-crested weir. This excel workbook simplifies the following for a sharp-crested weir with specified weir/channel dimensions and head over the weir: i) determination of whether the flow over the weir is fully contracted or not. The term nappe is used for the sheet of water flowing over the weir free flow is the flow condition over a sharp-crested weir when there is free.

Water passes through a contracted section over the weir plate sharp crested weirs have some advantages that the flow is substantially free from viscous effects and resultant energy dissipation (henderson, 1967 ayd n et al, 2011. Rectangular weir design calculations, software rectangular weir calculator discharge weir contractions cause the water flow lines to converge through the notch the us bureau of reclamation has conducted many weir tests over several decades using weirs with particular dimensions. The iowa institute of hydraulic research has posted an excerpt of one of their older videos, fluid motion in a gravitation field flow over weirs. Home page for main menu characteristics of flow over a sharp crested overshot weir objective to determine the relationship between upstream head and flow-rate for water flowing over a sharp crested weir and to calculate the discharge coefficient and to observe the flow patterns obtained. And circular weirs v-notch and sutm weirs figure 51 flow-wise cross-section over a sharp-crested (thin-plate) weir in general sharp-crested weirs will be used where highly accurate discharge measure- ments.
