Procedures are presented for casting 50-ft^2/sec trapezoidal water measurement
flumes in 2-foot bottom width lined and unlined ditches. Drawings and
construction details for the concrete forms used are also presented. Flumes
installed in concrete-lined ditches require about 13 man-hours and cost about $230.
Flow can be determined for both free and submerged flow conditions from rating
tables with depth measured in a sitting well or with a sloping gage on the flue sidewall.
