(10.56) should give adequate accuracy, as shown in the table. Since the overfall spans the entire channel, artificial ventilation may be needed, such as holes in the channel walls.

An adequate contraction correction [19, 20] is to reduce the effective weir width by 0.1H, as shown in the table. It seems, however, that this type of weir is r...
