Weirs. Generally, any flow obstruction that causes water to rise to flow over it, but used exclusively for intentional obstructions Uses include flow measurement (sharp-crested weirs) and control of water surface profile, e.g., by inducing super-critical flow (broad-crested weirs).

Weirs

Generally, any flow obstruction that causes water to rise to flow over it, but used exclusively for intentional obstructions

Uses include flow measurement (sharp-crested weirs) and control of water surface profile, e.g., by inducing super-critical flow (broad-crested weirs)

Definition Diagram and Analysis of Sharp-Crested Weirs

Drawdown at crest is typically ~0.15 H

slide3

Nappe entrains air underneath it and can collapse onto the downstream side of the weir; following analysis assumes that this does not occur (can ventilate this area to assure an air space)

slide4

Consider thin layer dh in plane of weir in a rectangular channel. Assuming V2>>Vo2 and negligible frictional headloss, V=(2gh)0.5, so (replacing L by b):

where HC is the distance from the crest of the weir to the water surface at that location.

slide5

Measurements of the water surface elevation above the weir crest are typically made upstream of the weir, where the water surface has not been significantly affected, and this value of H is used instead of HC in the calculation. To account for this and other approximations, an empirical coefficient is added to the equation:

Cw can be approximated by 0.611+0.075(H/Pw) and is typically in the range 0.64-0.70.

slide6

Other Common Shapes for Sharp-Crested Weirs

V-notch or Triangular weir

Contracted weir

V-notch weir useful if low flows are of interest, since they could cling to the plate of a rectangular weir. For V-notch weirs:

Weir can totally block part of the channel width, in which case the channel is contracted.

Cw,V-notch typically ~0.6
