Side weirs are used widely in order to divert flows from rivers, canals, sewers and reservoirs.

Side weirs are widely used to divert or discharge flows from reservoirs, rivers, artificial channels and sewers. The hydraulic behaviour of this type of weir is complex and difficult to predict accurately using simple methods and the diversity of applictions of side weirs has the potential to complicate guidance.

The side weirs could also be used as a channel level control. However, the most common use of this structure is as a flood control device which divert the excess flow to a secondary stream or to a. Source: Hydraulic design of side weirs, 1 Jan (9–13) Triangular labyrinth side weirs with one and two cycles Authors: S. Mahmood Borghei, Mohammad Ali Nekooie, Hadi .   For the preliminary design, there are two key parameters to examine, namely: the crest level of the side weir, and the crest length. The requirement for a side weir often comes about because of a need to dis‐charge excess flow from a channel, without a large increase in water level in the channel. The side weir is ideal in this respect, because small increases in water level can generate large . Section 3. HYDRAULIC DESIGN A. Weirs and Orifices NOTE: Some of the graphs contained in this section are copied from the Los Angeles Hydraulics Manual and we wish to give them credit for their efforts. Also, applicable graphs are for 8” curb heights which may not meet Rio Rancho standards. A WEIRS A weir is a barrier in an open channel.

Piano Key Weir spillway standard design principles and flow induced vibrations to four times higher than that for a linear weir at a sim ilar hydraulic head. the side crest length beyond. This invaluable book presents a new design procedure that was developed by analysing published data on the performance of side weirs and using the results to calibrate a predictive numerical model. Presented in the form of graphs and simplified equations, this new method enables the flow rate discharged by a side weir to be determined by direct calculation. Hydraulic design of side weirs.

A fairly simple distribution box, like those used in filtration plants, will probably work.
