.5 ft .5 ft Erin Marek 10/17/07 CE301 Lab 5 Water Discharge over a Sharp-Crested Weir Introduction : The purpose of the experiment of water over a weir is to learn and understand how to calculate the flow rate and velocity of water flowing over a weir and to compare these calculations to ones from a real-life model. Procedures : o Set up the lab making sure that all the required materials are ready and set up properly. Make sure the sharp-crested weir is installed properly. o Measure and record the height of the flume, top of the weir, height of the weir, and length of the weir. o Begin allowing water to flow into the flume and let it stabilize. Record the H tot and the rate of flow Q. o Vary the flow and elevation of the water to get different recordings for the chart and repeat this until there are 10 readings. o Use these values to calculate the flow using the formulas and the velocity. o
