2 Calculation of Lacey's Silt Factor
S = (1/1844) x f**5/3 / Q**1/6
Lacey's silt factor, f 2.04
3 Fixation of Crest Level
Afflux 3 ft
Height of crest above river bed, P 6 ft
Scour depth, R = 0.9(qabt**2 / f)**1/3 19.82 ft
Depth of water above crest, Ho = R P 13.82 ft
Approach velocity, Vo = qabt / R 7.45 ft/s
Energy head, ho = Vo**2 / 2g 0.86 ft
Eo = Ho + ho 14.69 ft
Do = HFL  RBL 18.00 ft
E1 = Do + ho + Afflux 21.86 ft
Level of E1 = RBL + E1 603.86 ft
Crest level = Level of E1  Eo 589.18 ft
Maximum d/s water level 600 ft
h = d/s WL  Crest Level 10.82 ft
Using Gibson Curve
h / Eo 0.74
C' / C 0.84
C 3.8 fps
C' = (C'/C) x C 3.19
Q = C' x W clear x Eo**3/2 538948 cusecs O.K
4 Design of Undersluices
Muhammad Azhar Saleem
2003/IIMSCSTRU01
Design of Barrage Hydraulic Structures
Difference between undersluices & main weir 3 ft
Number of undersluices (N1) 2
Number of bays for one undersluices (N2) 5
Flow through undesluices as % of main weir 120 %
Crest level of undersluices 586.18 ft
b1 = N1 x Bay width 300 ft
qus = % flow x q weir 200 cusecs/ft
Scour depth, R = 0.9(qus**2 / f)**1/3 24.26 ft
Do, (may be Do = R) 24.26 ft
Approach velocity, Vo = qus / R 8.24 ft/sec
Energy head, ho = Vo**2 / 2g 1.06 ft
Maximum U/S E.L = HFL + Afflux + ho 604.06 ft
Eo = U/S E.L  Crest Level 17.88 ft
h = (U/S E.L  Afflux)  Crest level 14.88 ft
h / Eo 0.83
Using Gibson Curve
C' / C 0.76
C' = (C'/C) x C 2.89
Q1 & Q3, ( Q = C' x Wclear x Eo**3/2) 131000 cusecs
Q main weir = C' x (Wclear(bays)  Wclear( us) )x Eo**3/2 431158 cusecs
Total Discharge = Q1 + Q3 + Q main weir 562158 cusecs O.K
%water through undersluices=(Q1+Q3)/Qmain weir*100 30.4 % 1
Hence
Crest Level of Undersluices 586.18 ft
Number of Bays on Each Side 5
