HM 160.30 Set of Plate Weirs, 4 Types Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
Technical Description
The overshoot weir is one of the fixed forms of weirs, the water flows over the weir. The experimental set-up is placed on the flume base and positioned using bolts. The set-up consists of the weir plate on a mounting frame and lockable aeration tubes. Plastic tubular seals inserted in slots on the side of the weir plate complete the experimental set-up. The weir crest is chamfered at 45 and thus enables sharp edged, aerated overshoot. On real weirs, aerated overshoot is used to prevent oscillations in the weir locks; in the experiment the influence of the aerated zone on the flow at different flow rates is demonstrated.
Learning Objectives / Experiments
In conjunction with the HM 160, the following experiments are possible:
Discharge on an overflow weir
Investigation of flow action on aerated and non-aerated overflow
Occurrence of separation on a sharp edged weir
Difference between attached and separated flow


For the exact measurement of water levels, the HM 160.52 Level Gauge is recommended.
