Weir The Real Difference
Cristina Castillo & Diego Cuevas
James Pace High School, Brownsville, TX, US
The purpose of this project was to simulate the Rio Grande River and design a weir which will be able to deviate water for storage and, at the same time, increase its flow. First the experiment was tested on the regular river flow, then, it was tested with the integration of the reservoir, finally, the Archimedes screw was added in the third and final test. The water flow increased, however the amount of water decreased as it was predicted since it deviated towards the weir. The innovated weir increased the water flow by approximately 10 percent in comparison to the regular weir. In conclusion, the hypothesis was supported by this experiment, the innovated weir design was more efficient.
