FLOW OVER BROAD-CRESTED WEIR WITH INFLOW BY APPROACH SHAFT – NUMERICAL MODEL
Keywords:Approach shaft, Broad-crested weir, Free surface level, Numerical model
In the case of flow over rectangular broad-crested weir, where the inflow is realized by approach shaft, occurs influence of water surface level by approach flow velocity. The paper describes numerical model of flow including weir, approach and outlet shaft. Simulations of flow were created by 2D and 3D model with using three methods of turbulent modelling. In this paper a water surface level for each model setup is evaluated and then it is compared with measured values.
