Hydraulic Engineering Calculators for Water Treatment Design
Provide the following calculators in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet in metric measurements (metres, centimetres and millimetres).
1. Weir Length calculator
Create a calculator that provides a rectangular weir length from variables, including flow, vessel dimensions and water level over the weir. The liquid media will be fresh or salt water in a water treatment/aquaculture application. Weir material will be fibreglass or similar (fibreglass covered concrete – waterproofing or fibreglass vessel).
2. Open Channel calculator
Create a calculator that allows the design of a channel (with no slope) for a given flow. The channel design will be able to remove the specified flow, through the customising of the channel dimensions. The area and dimensions should be able to be modified to assess the necessary size for the given flow. The channel material will be fibreglass or similar (fibreglass covered concrete – waterproofing or fibreglass vessel). The standard channel configuration attached as an image.
