FM-430.1 | Flow Over a Notch Weir Apparatus

Technical Specification
The Flow Over Weirs accessory consists of basic elements, used in conjunction with the flow channel, in the bench top of the Hydraulics Bench. Weir plates of different shapes are provided enabling familiarisation and comparison with theory. A quick-release connector in the base of the channel is unscrewed and a delivery nozzle screwed in its place. A stilling baffle locates into slots in the walls of the channel. The combination of the inlet nozzle and stilling baffle promote smooth flow conditions in the channel. A Vernier hook or point gauge is mounted on an instrument carrier, which is located on the side channels of the molded top. The carrier may be moved along the channels to the required measurement position. The rectangular notch weir or V notch weir to be tested is clamped to the weir carrier in the channel by thumb nuts. The stainless steel weir plates incorporate captive studs to aid assembly.
