Introduction

Open channel flow involves the flows of a liquid in a channel or conduit that is not completely filled. There exists a free surface between the flowing fluid (usually water) and fluid above it (usually the atmosphere). The main deriving force is the fluid weight-gravity forces the fluid to flow downhill. Under steady, fully developed flow conditions, the component if the weight force in the direction of flow is balanced by the equal and opposite shear force between the fluid and the channel surface.

9 .Type I Uniform flow (UF): The depth of flow does not vary along the channel (dy/dx=0). Nonuniform flows: ►Rapidly varying flows (RVF): The flow depth changes considerably over a relatively short distance dy/dx~1. ►Gradually varying flows (GVF): The flow depth changes slowly with distance dy/dx <<1.Classification .

Weir provides a convenient method of determining the flowrate in an open channel in terms of a single depth measurement. 108 .Weir A weir is an obstruction on a channel bottom over which the fluid must flow.

Sharp-Crested Weir 1/4 A sharp-Crested weir is essentially a vertical-edged flat plate placed across the channel. 109 . The fluid must flow across the sharp edge and drop into the pool downstream of the weir plate.

Broad-Crested Weir 1/3 A broad-crested weir is a structure in an open channel that has a horizontal crest above which the fluid pressure may be considered hydrostatic. 118 .

Generally, these weirs are restricted to the range 0.08 < H/Lw < 0.50. For long weir block (H/Lw < 0.08), head losses across the weir cannot be neglected. For short weir block (H/Lw > 0.50), the streamlines of the flow over the weir are not horizontal. Apply the Bernoulli equation

**

Water flows in a rectangular channel of width b = 2 m with flowrate between Qmin = 0.02 m3/s and Qmax = 0.60 m3/s. This flowrate is to be measured by using (a) a rectangular sharp-crested weir, (b) a triangular sharp-crested weir with θ=90º, or (c) a broad-crested weir. In all cases the bottom of the flow area over the weir is a distance Pw = 1 m above the channel bottom. Plot a graph of Q= Q(H) for each weir and comment on which weir would be best for this application.
