The error in the discharge coefficient (including C,) of a rectangular profile weir, con- structed with reasonable care and skill, may be obtained from the equation. Weirs in the irrigation system of The Fayoum Governorate in Egypt have been modified: crests have been widened and pipes have been installed. As a result. Weirs in the irrigation system of The Fayoum Governorate in Egypt have been Hydraulic theory on flow over weirs and through pipes was subsequently used.

Design of Weirs is divided to 3 parts: Classification According to Position in Plan.

Soil i cr F. Hydraulic Design determination of crest level and weir length according to head.

Flow of Water in a Channel is controlled either by: For lands having mild slopes or flat lands. For lands having steep slopes Regulators: Classification of Weirs According to Geometrical Shape. Two weirs have to be constructed at the entrance of each canal.

Ability of fluid to move in the soil under certain head dimensions of velocity. Percolation length is the path length from a to b. Must cause minimum Loss in Head. Structural Design Empirical Dimensioning fayoumm check of stability. Lane suggested that a weight of three should be given to vertical creep and a weight of one to horizontal creep.

Design head H is the biggest of 12and 3. Percolation length creep length is the length to dissipate the total hydraulic pressure on the structure. Reducing the hydraulic slope gradient in a canal if canal water slope is greater than the allowable water slope. T he length of the seepage path transversed by the water is known as the length of creep fayouj length.

Water percolation length takes a short cut from a to b. The scour continues until the energy of the flowing water reaches the normal channel energy.

H n varies until H critical soil particles begin to move. Scour may be defined as deepening and widening of water channel under the influence of the flowing water with high velocities. Undermining Piping is to carry away wash soil particles with flowing water below the ground surface causing collapse or failure of the above structure.

For proper Design qeirs Water Structures: Determination of the uplift diagram. I- Hydraulic Design of Weirs. Determination of Percolation Length To determine the critical head: Classification According to Crest Length B. Objectives of Wei rs weirx I rrigation Canals.


Weirs for reducing water slope in steep lands. Reducing head on existing structures. For lands having steep slopes. Seepage or percolation below weirs on previous soils: III — Detailed Drawings.

Actual percolation length is smaller than designed. Proper distribution of water carried by a main canal among the branch canals depending upon it.

Fayoum Weir Drawing • Topic •

Of soil under water. Percolation is the flow of water under the ground surface due to an applied differential head. Bligh supposed that the dissipation of head per unit length of creep is constant throughout the seepage path.
