Document Type: Journal Paper


The purpose of this paper is to present some experimental results for Venturi flumes of the design. While these designs may be used also as Venturimeters for full pipe flow, the results given herein refer only to open-channel flow is supercritical and a jump forms a short distance upstream of the flume. Information about the limiting submergence of the flumes tested is also presented.
