Document Type: Journal Paper

Abstract:

Devices and structures for measuring irrigation water are usually subjected to changes in water levels upstream; approach to meet this problem is standardization and calibration of measuring equipment; magnitude of errors resulting from changes in certain dimensions, incorrect settings, changes in flow patterns, and other deviations evaluated for some of commonly used measuring devices.
