General principle of flow control, utilizing non-linear resistance, is developed that is applicable to both open and closed conduits; control is definitely adjustable for discharge over its design range, and holds flow close to predetermined discharge over its head range; control is readily converted into flow meter with linear head-discharge curve and adjustable range and sensitivity.
