Unformatted text preview: coefficient: v v Cd | Q/(by1) For a round-nosed broad-crested weir, Eq. (10.57) applies. For an unfinished cement surface, read 2.4 mm from Table 10.1.

(b) Check that H/L 0.5 0.7 as required. The approach Reynolds number is V1H/ 2.9 E5, just barely below the recommended limit in Eq. (10.57). Since V1 0.5 m/s, V2/(2g) 0.012 m, so the error in taking total head equal to 0.6 m is 1 about 2 percent. We could correct this for upstream velocity head if desired. Other Thin-Plate Weir Designs Weirs are often used for flow measurement and control of artificial channels. The two most common shapes are a rectangle and a V notch, as shown in Table 10.2. All should be fully ventilated and not drowned. Table 10.2a shows a full-wi...
