Head and Cross Regulators
The supplies passing down the parent canal and off take channel are controlled by cross regulator
and head regulator respectively.

Functions of Cross Regulators
1. Regulation of the canal system.
2. Raising the water level in the main canal in order to feed the off take channels.
3. To facilitate communication by building a road over the cross regulator with little extra
cost.
4. To absorb the fluctuations in the canal system.
Functions of Head Regulators
1. To regulate and control supplies entering the off take channel (distributary) from the
main (parent) canal.
2. To control silt entering into the distributary.
3. To serve for measurement of discharge.
Alignment
The best alignment of the off take channel is when it makes angle zero with the parent canal
initially and then separates out in a transition. See Fig. 13.1. In this case there is a transition
curve for both off take and parent channel to avoid silt accumulation.
Another alternative by making both channels an angle with respect to parent channel upstream.

In case of obligatory straight alignment of the parent channel, the usual angle of the off take
channel is 60º to 80º (in most important works needs a model study). For excessive silt entry into
the off take channel. Fig. 13.3.

Design Criteria
1. Waterway
The effective waterway of head regulator should not be less than 60% of bed width of off
taking channel and mean velocity should not exceed 2.5 m/sec.
2. Crest level
Crest level of the distributary head regulator is generally kept 0.3 m to 0.6 m higher than
crest level of cross regulator (C.R.). The crest level of C.R. is provided at bed level of
parent canal.

equal to

depending on the drowning ratio, see Fig. 6.5.

4. Shape of crest
The u.s face of the crest should be given a slope of 1:1. The d.s. sloping glacis should not
be steeper than 2:1.

6. Vertical cut-offs
The cut-off should be provided at the end of u.s. and d.s. floors for safety against scour,
undermining and exit gradient. Due to Lacey’s scour depth

9. Protection works
Downstream of floor, properly designed filter loaded by concrete blocks should be
provided. The length of inverted filter is kept equal to 2D (D is the depth of d.s. cut-off
below d.s. bed). Details of minimum thickness of the filter are given in Table 6.3. The
width of gabs between the blocks shall not be more than 50 mm which should be packed
with biggest size of pebbles available. Beyond the filter, an apron of 1.5D length shall be
provided. Similar protection is also provided in the u.s. in a length equal to D. the cubic
content of material in launching apron should be equal to

of 60º from a canal which discharges 120 cumec.
