Dynamic pressure is a measure of the kinetic energy per unit volume of a fluid in motion. In aerodynamics and hydrodynamics, it is an essential […]
The Bernoulli equation describes the conservation of energy for a fluid flowing in a steady, incompressible stream. It states that the sum of the pressure

The weir coefficient is a dimensionless parameter that incorporates the gravitational acceleration, discharge coefficient, and the geometric characteristics of the weir into a single value.
Head pressure refers to the force exerted by a fluid, such as water or gas, at a specific point in a closed system in relation
The wetted perimeter is the length of the interface between a flowing fluid (such as water in a river or stream) and the channel or
In open channel analysis, weir head refers to the height of the water surface above the crest of a weir. It represents the energy exerted
Weirs are structures built across rivers or streams to control water flow by creating a barrier that raises the water level upstream. They are commonly
