Glenn McDermott - Greenspan Technology , 22 August, 2012


Examples of using these models in:

  1. Flumes/Weirs – Accurate and easy to check using relevant ISOs
  2. Large irrigation flume in Victoria – client concerned about high tailwater levels drowning it’s rating
  3. Sewage treatment plant effluent weir used to report discharge to creek – but subject to overtopping in wet weather as well as not conforming to ISO requirements within the weir – for Sydney client
  4. Stormwater measurement flume – HECRAS used to extend rating from top of flume to top of channel – Singapore client
