Title: Review of low velocity measurement techniques (280/1/A)
Author: National Rivers Authority Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
This report describes the review of low velocity measurement techniques carried out by HR Wallingford under NRA Research and Development Project BO1 2 90. Information was obtained from all ten NRA Regions on the extent of gauging problems associated with low velocities of flow, and visits were made to all the Regional Offices. Contacts were also made with equipment manufacturers and other external organisations and information was obtained on low velocity measurement techniques. All available methods of flow gauging have been considered with respect to low velocity measurement. Methods which may be suitable have been identified, and information on the use of these methods in NRA Regions has been obtained.
