      A flume, as applied to open channel flow, is a fixed structure in the flow path that directs or restricts the flowing water in a manner that allows a measurement of the fluid depth at a defined point to be translated into a volumetric flow rate. There are several different types of flumes, each with a characteristic measuring . examples to illustrate application to a range of situations, including various flow rates, channel types, and construction techniques. INTRODUCTION The term long-throated flume describes a broad family of critical-flow flumes and broad-crested weirs used to measure open-channel File Size: KB.

    Critical flow in open channels can be created by three means: 1. Raising the bottom of the channel; 2. Lowering the bottom of the channel; 3. Contracting the flow cross-section (narrowing the channel). Flow measurement devices strive to achieve this critical flow for various conditions thus providing an accurate means of Size: 2MB. Measurement of flow, whether it's liquid or solid. Our open channel flow measurement section includes our Microflow products which deliver accurate and efficient velocity flow measurement, presented either as a stand-alone device or as part of a complete area velocity flow meter system.

    The discharge in open channels can be measured by a wide variety of structures. As mentioned by Boiten gates, weirs and flumes have been used for a long time to determine flow discharges in open channels. Parshall flumes were developed in the early s as simple and inexpensive devices for flow measurement in open Cited by: 8. The range of conditions over which flow can be measured with long-throated flumes and broad-crested weirs is unlimited. A large variety of examples are presented. The manual includes a revised mathematical model for designing a flow-measuring structure in any open channel Cited by:

Measuring Open Channel Flow Rates with a weir or a flume. Flow measuring flumes for open channel systems [Bos, Marinus Gijsberthus] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

Flow measuring flumes for open channel systemsCited by: This book discusses the measurement of open channel flows on a solid scientific foundation by developing sound theory of water flow through long-throated flumes in their numerous shapes (including broad-crested weirs.

Flumes are specially shaped, engineered structures that are used to measure the flow of water in open channels.

Flumes are static in nature - having no moving parts - and develop a relationship between the water level in the flume and the flow rate by restricting the flow of water in a variety of ways. Flumes can accelerate slow, sub-critical (F r flow.

The design and calibration of three simple flumes for flow measurements in open channels are discussed. The flumes are designed based on principles of critical flow in open channels. Critical flow is created through the contraction of the flow cross section by installing vertical cylindrical columns in an open channel.

Measuring the flow rate of water in an open channel typically involves some type of obstruction in the path of flow. The two major categories of open channel flow measurement devices discussed in this course are the weir and the flume.

A weir is a vertical obstruction that the water must flow File Size: 1MB. Measuring flow in a flume should be a straightforward affair. Unfortunately, we get more calls and inquiries on where / how to measure flow in a Palmer-Bowlus flume than all other flumes combined so we thought that we would go over it set the record straight.

To better understand how to measure with a Palmer-Bowlus flume lets first start with understanding the flume. Open channel flow rate can be measured with a weir, which is a vertical obstruction in the flow path, or a flume, which is a constriction in the width of the channel.

Either one causes a change in water depth in the channel, which can be correlated with flow.

This book discusses the measurement of open channel flows on a solid scientific foundation by developing sound theory of water flow through long-throated flumes in their numerous shapes Author: Zohrab Samani.

The book also describes open channel flow measurement, different types of weirs and flumes, how to select and install primary measuring devices, use of the Manning formula (and its limitations), and a discussion of area velocity flow measurement /5(8).

For measuring flow in open channels, the authors recommend long-throated flumes. These belong to an extensive family of structures that includes broad-crested weirs with a streamlined flow contraction.

Broad-crested weirs are particularly suitable for use in irrigation canals and long-throated flumes.

Flumes are an accurate and effective way to measure flow rate in open channel flow applications. All flumes work by measuring how much the water rises in level before an obstruction (the flume) of known dimensions and shape.

A flume. To measure the flow of an open channel, we have to make the flow pass through obstructions. The flow is measured from this obstruction as weirs and flumes. A special method used to measure the flow is to use current meters other than the Pitot tube and measurement.

Weirs and Flumes Flow Measurement A very different style of variable-area flow meter is used extensively to measure flow rate through open channels, such as irrigation ditches. If an obstruction is placed within a channel, any liquid flowing through the channel.

This publication integrates material from the book Flow Measuring Flumes for Open Channel Systems and the book FLUME: Design and Calibration of Long- Throated Measuring Flumes.

If the ISCO / Tracom approach to flow rating was used to size the flume, the channel upstream of the flume may well overtop before the desired flow depth in the flume was reached. While we have called out ISCO and Tracom above (as their tables are the same), the sort of misrating is also present in Plasti-Fab's table for the same flume.

In such cases, a properly sized H-flume (open channel flow) or Parshall flume may be used to measure open-channel flow.
