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 ThinPlate 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.
