The use of labyrinth weirs for water level control


, : The use of labyrinth weirs for water level control. Water International 20(1): 46-52

Labyrinth weirs for water level control are characterized by having a longer crest length than the width of the river. This is achieved by having a plane form that consists of repeating geometric cycles, typically trapezoidal in form. The long crest length means that it can pass large flows at low heads. Water levels at low flows are maintained simply by the height of the weir crest.
