Flow Measurement for Structure Assessment in Richmond Irrigation District
E. Leigh, M. Henry, G. Fipps
Extension Agricultural Engineering investigated the flume and flow measurement problem of Richmond Irrigation District. At normal operating conditions, the existing flume is over 90% submerged which makes it inaccurate for flow measurement. An alternative is to calibrate the radial gate and use it for flow measurement. Accuracy is expected to be within 5 to 10% using this approach.
