Effective Analysis by Arrangement of Multi-Baffle at Weir Downstream
Abstract: The purpose of the study is to analyze the reduction effects of multi-baffle installed for improving the scour issue of weir downstream and the study reviewed the flow reduction effect for the location of the battle and the reduction effect associated with the baffle installation. We carried out nine cases of experiments and analyzed reduction effects through the flow rate comparison for the arrangement type of the cases. As the result of the experiment, the maximum flow rate in the weir downstream of the case 1, which has no baffle installation, is measured at 2.068 m/s due to multidirectional flow and crossing waves, and channel walls had whirlpool generation on the left and right with fast discharge flow. The maximum water level showed lower water level than when the battle was installed as there is no flow resistance. The maximum stream velocity in the weir downstream from cases 2 to 9 installed with a baffle demonstrated reduction in the maximum stream velocity than before the battle was installed and showed an increased tendency than before the baffle was installed as the maximum water level is affected by flow resistance. As the result of the comparison of the reduction effect by installing the baffle, the V type of the case 6 demonstrated the best reduction effect.
