PERFORMANCE AND DESIGN STANDARDS FOR CONTROL WEIRS: AN INVESTIGATION OF DISCHARGE THROUGH SLOTTED WEIRS. FINAL REPORT
An experimental investigation of the hydraulic performance of notch weirs and orifices used for flow control is reported. Of concern is the effect that various aspects of the construction of these structures may have on discharge characteristics. In particular, the effect of finite crest breadth and very narrow widths has been examined. Various weir and orifice models typical of those found in practice have been tested in a recirculating flow facility. The results of these experiments have been presented in the form of empirical design equations along with recommendations for design standards. Analytical methods for assessing pond performance are discussed.
