Flow Over Notches and Weirs A notch is an opening in the side of a tank or reservoir which extends above the surface of the liquid. It is usually a device for. –As it has sharp edges, the flow over the notch is FRICTIONLESS (Ff=0). –these are generally used to measure small discharge across CANAL. WEIR: -These. The bottom edge, over which the liquid flows, is known as sill or crest of the notch and the sheet of liquid flowing over a notch (or a weir) is known as nappe or.

If the bulk of the weir is thicker than 0. A notch is an opening in the side of a measuring tank or reservoir extending above the free surface. To produce automated calculations, LMNO Engineering used a curve fitting program to obtain the equations which best fit the C and k curves. It may be sharp crested but also may have a substantial width in the direction of flow – it is used as both a flow measuring device and a device to raise water levels.

If you wish to download it, please recommend it to your friends in any social system. A weir is a notch on a larger scale.

Parshall submerged Parshall, Trapezoidal, Rectangular, and U shape. As a result, the discharge through the strip will be. All of the references show similar curves for C and k vs. International Organization of Standards.

We will also assume that the velocity through any elemental strip depends only on the depth below the free surface. The basic principle is that discharge is directly related to the water depth above the crotch bottom of the V; this distance is called head h.


The V-notch design causes small changes in discharge to have a large change in depth allowing more accurate head measurement than with a rectangular weir. Download ppt “Flow Over Notches and Weirs”.

Notches – Fluid Mechanics – Engineering Numerical Components in C and C++

Input results in flwo negative head due to the compiler’s machine precision. Introduction Weirs are typically installed in open channels such as streams to determine discharge flowrate. We think you have liked this presentation. Our calculation does not account for partially contracted weirs, but for most practical purposes the difference in C is inconsequential.

Flow Over Notches and Weirs

Please contact us for consulting or other questions. For a notch of any shape shown in figure, consider a horizontal strip of width b at a depth h below the free surface and height d h. A weir is a notch on a large scale, used, for example, to measure the flow of a river, and may be sharp edged or have a substantial breadth in the direction of flow.

Published by Alessandro Illes Modified over 3 years ago. To make this website work, we log user data and share it with processors.

Available from Global Engineering Documents at http: Discharge and Head Calculations, Equations, and Guidelines for water flow measurement in streams and channels. This is an initial check of user input. The momentum equation is a statement of Newton.

Water flow measurement in open channels using weirs and venturi flumes – Part 1: When the water on the downstream side of a weir rises above the level of the crest, the weir is said to be a submerged weir.

Standard method for open-channel flow measurement of water with thin-plate weirs. As in the case of orifice, the actual discharge through a notch or weir can be found by multiplying the theoretical discharge by a coefficient of discharge to allow for energy losses and the contraction of the cross-section of the stream at the bottom and sides. Feedback Privacy Policy Feedback. The bottom of the “V” should be at least 1. V-Notch Triangular Weir Calculator. Note that the value of v 1 is obtained by dividing the discharge by the full cross sectional area of the channel itself, not that of the notch.


These are acceptable assumptions for tanks with notches or reservoirs with weirs, but for flows where the velocity approaching the weir is substantial the kinetic energy must be taken into account e.

Consider the two dimensional system in the figure below: My presentations Profile Feedback Log out. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation. This is a satisfactory assumption for flow over a notch or weir in the side of a large reservoir, but, is the notch or weir is placed at the end of a narrow channel, the velocity of approach to the weir will be substantial and the head h producing flow will be increased by the kinetic energy of the approaching liquid to a value.

Thus in this case, the effects of sides of the weir is eliminated or suppressed. Share buttons are a little bit lower. When the length of crest of the weir is xnd as the width of the channel, the weir is said to be weeirs weir.

Water surface downstream of the weir should be at least 0. If you compare it to the graphs shown in the references, it looks nearly identical which implies that our fits are very good. To use this website, you must agree to our Privacy Policyincluding cookie policy.
