원추형 중앙 배플 수로는 개방 채널에서 임시 유량 측정을 위한 효과적인 솔루션을 제공합니다. 

원추형 중앙 배플 수로는 원뿔 모양의 장애물 또는 열린 수로의 중심에서 수직으로 향하는 중앙 배플로 구성됩니다. 본 연구에서, 원추형 중앙 배플 수로를 사용하여 개방 채널에서 유량 측정을 위해 이전에 개발된 배출 예측 모델은 더 넓은 적용 범위를 커버하기 위해 직사각형 및 사다리꼴 채널에서 사용하기 위해 실험적으로 재 보정되었습니다. 

제안된 보정 방정식은 FLOW-3D를 사용한 전산유체역학(CFD) 시뮬레이션 결과를 사용하여 확장된 범위의 흐름 및 기하학적 매개변수에 대해 검증되었습니다. 

시뮬레이션 연구는 두 단계로 수행됩니다. 첫 번째 단계는 시뮬레이션의 수면 프로파일과 동일한 배출 및 흐름 조건에 대한 실험 흐름을 비교하여 설정한 정의된 시뮬레이션 문제의 검증입니다. 

두 번째 단계는 무차원 방전 및 측면 경사(중1= 0중1=0, 0.50, 1.00 및 1.50). 80% 미만의 수중에서 방전 예측의 오류는 평균값이 거의 3%로 항상 10% 미만인 것으로 나타났습니다. 

CFD 분석 결과에 따르면 보정된 배출 예측 모델의 사용은 수중 한계 80%까지 권장되었으며, 그 이상에서는 오차가 10% 이상인 것으로 나타났습니다.

Conical central baffle flumes present an effective solution for temporary flow measurements in open channels. A conical central baffle flume consists of a cone-shaped obstruction, or a central baffle, oriented vertically at the center of an open channel. In the present study, a previously developed discharge prediction model for flow measurements in open channels using the conical central baffle flumes has been experimentally recalibrated for use in rectangular and trapezoidal channels to cover a wider application range. The proposed calibration equation has been validated for an extended range of flow and geometrical parameters using the results of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations using Flow-3D. The simulation studies are carried out in two steps. The first step is the validation of the defined simulation problem set up by comparing the water surface profiles of the simulation and experiment flows for the same discharge and flow conditions. The second step is the validation of the proposed discharge prediction model for the extended range (0–0.50) of the dimensionless discharge and side slopes (m1=0m1=0, 0.50, 1.00, and 1.50). It is found that for submergence less than 80%, the error in discharge prediction is always less than 10% with a mean value of nearly 3%. Based on the results of the CFD analysis, the use of the calibrated discharge prediction model has been recommended up to a submergence limit of 80%, beyond which the errors are found to be greater than 10%.
