    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Provides guidelines for selection of a particular type of flow gauging structure for liquid flow measurement in open channels. It sets out the factors, and summarizes the parameters, which may influence a selection. In general, a flow gauging structure is used when high accuracy is required for continuous records of flow. Covers definitions and symbols, units of measurement, types of structure, factors affecting choice, recommendations and summary.
