V-Notch Weir flow is calculated using the following formula:

 

where

Cd = Coefficient of Discharge

vang = internal angle of the V (degrees)

g = acceleration due to gravity (9.81 m²/s)

H = height of water above weir invert


When the downstream level is above the crest level the software will use the Villemonte equation to simulate the submerged nature of the flow:

where:

Qs = Submerged Flow Rate

Q = Free-flow rate at H

Yd = Depth downstream

H = Water Depth at point of measurement

Note: Discharge exponent of 2.5 (5/2) used for V-Notch weirs.
