Breach Flow Modeled as Flow over a Weir

By Y (Yankai) Ren


The main objective of the study is to understand the effects of breach properties (e.g. the top width, the depth and the bottom width of the breach) on the breach flow. The breach flow was modeled as flow over a compound broad-crested weir. A laboratory experiment was carried out with a fixed weir model in a flume. Five cases with different breach properties were tested
