V-Notch Sharp-Crested Weir

Figure 5-6: V-Notch Sharp Crested Weir The discharge over an unsubmerged V-Notch sharp-crested weir is defined as:

(5.38) Where Q C 5 H = = = = Discharge over weir (m3/sec., ft3/sec.) Coefficient of discharge (C = 0.58 typically used for a 90 V-notch weir) Angle of notch (degrees) Head above bottom of notch (m, ft)

Table 5-1: V-Notch Weir Coefficient of Discharge Weir Angle (degrees) Head (feet) 22.5 30 45 60 90 120 0.5 1.0 1.5 2.0 2.5 3.0 .611 .605 .596 .590 .584 .581 .593 .590 .583 .580 .576 .575 .586 .583 .578 .575 .572 .672 .583 .580 .576 .573 .571 .571 .580 .578 .574 .572 .570 .570 .579 .577 .574 .571 .570 .570

Coefficients for sharp-crested V-notched weirs vary with the angle of the notch and with head depth.
