Importance of Settling Basins: Diversion Weirs with Storage Reservoir

Silt is considered to be a life threat for hydropower/Storage reservoir projects such as weirs, dams etc apart from decreasing capacity of these projects it also damages the mechanical parts of hydropower projects. To remove/reduce silt from rivers/water settling basins or Under sluices are usually adopted, If reservoir of a weir would itself act as

Design of Weir and Conditions for Stability & Maximum stress

In any hydropower projects the diversion structures occupies the key position. Among these diverging structures weir is the most commonly used structure, because of its simple design and operation. Different types of weir can be used as diverging structures some of them are given below: Sharp crested weir Broad crested weir Ogee weir Tyrolean weir weir with lateral intake etc

General Stability Criteria of Weirs

Stability analysis have been carried out for structures for most severe conditions of horizontal and vertical forces. Stability criteria are aimed at ensuring the overall safety of structure against overturning, flotation and sliding. The structures have been designed so that it should be safe against overturning at any horizontal plane within the structure at the base, or at a plane below
