I nfluence of Velocity of A pproach.-To take account of the velocity of approach it it is usual to replace h in the formula by h-I-au*/2g where a is a coefficient not very well ascertained. Then Q =#l(h+<»1¢'/2g)~/ l2g(h+au”/2g)} =#lh' (2§ h)(1 +fw2/2gh)3~ (2) The original simple equation can be used if m =;i(1 -l-au”/2gh)% or very approximately, since 142/2gh is small, m =/-(I +%-w”/2gh)- (3) Now if p is the height of the weir crest above the bottom of' the canal (fig. 52), u=Q/l(p-l-h).

The discussion of the results leads to the following values of m in the general equation (1):- m =+-(1 +2-su'/2gh) Fig. 52. from the weir, but encloses a volume of air which is at less than atmospheric pressure, and the tail water rises under the sheet. The discharge is a little greater than for free overfall. At greater head the air disappears from below the sheet and the sheet is said to be “ drowned." The drowned sheet may be independent of the tail water level or influenced by it. In the former case the fall is followed by a rapid, terminating in a standing wave. In the latter case when the foot of the sheet is drowned the level ff 1'4'3'~"~3= ii=;; of the tail water influences fl *:Q;*>f'~the discharge even if it is "'“"" " '°-Q5 below the weir crest.

In the former case the condition is that of a sharp-edged weir and it is realized when the head is at least double the width of crest. It may arise if the head is at least 1% the width of crest. Between these limits the condition of the sheet is unstable. When the sheet is adherent the coefficient m depends on the ratio of the head h to the width of crest e (fig. 53), and is given by the equation m=m1 [0-70-i-0-185h/c], where ml is the coefficient for a sharp edged weir in similar conditions. Rounding the upstream edge even to a small extent modifies the dis- ' ' " ' 'lcharge. If R is the radius of the rounding the coefficient m is increased in the ratio 1 to 1 +R/h nearly.

The following are coefficients by which the discharge of a vertical weir should be multiplied to obtain the discharge of the inclined weir. Coefficient.

In all the preceding cases the sheet passing over the weir is detached completely from the weir and its under-surface is subject to atmospheric pressure. These conditions permit the most exact determination of the coefficient of discharge. If the sides of the canal below the weir are not so arranged as to permit the access of air under the sheet, the phenomena are more complicated. So long as the head does not exceed a certain limit the sheet is detached 5%//¢'r;' //¢/;;<e/f;/tgegg.;
