Analysis of Broad-Crested Weirs The broad-crested weir of Fig. 10.16b can be analyzed more accurately because it creates a short run of nearly one-dimensional critical flow, as shown. Bernoulli’s equation from upstream to the weir crest yields V2 1 2g Y 2 Vc 2g H 2 If the crest is very wide into the paper, Vc yc gyc from Eq. (10.33). Thus we can solve for V2 1 3g 2H 3 yc Y 2H 3 This result was used without proof to derive Eq. (10.53...
