​How to Meas​​​ure Flow in Rivers & Wide Channels (Re-Run)

Date: Tuesday, July​ 27, 2021

Time(s): 7:00 a.m. CDT​1:00 p.m. CDT​8:00 p.m. CDT

Measuring flow rates in large open channels and rivers is a challenging task requiring the right set of instruments properly calibrated and configured, and coupled with fully validated data-interpretation and calculation methods. Obtaining highly accurate readings for level, velocity, and flow is critical to programs involving flood control, irrigation, hydroelectric power, environmental protection, wastewater management, and more.

In this intermediate-to-advanced webinar Teledyne ISCO’s flow measurement experts discuss current best practices for obtaining accurate and reliable flow rate data in environments where traditional small-channel and/or closed-channel methods are not suitable.

Topics include:

  • Level and velocity measurement technologies
  • Ultrasonic versus radar
  • Sensor range considerations
  • The impact of channel shape on instrument selection and setup
  • Expected accuracy of open-channel flow-measurement systems
  • Data retrieval options
  • Data validation and flow rate calculations

From this 45-minute presentation plus Q&A session, attendees will be better able to assess large open channel installations to identify important challenges and select the most appropriate measurement instruments and calculation methods. Attendees will also learn how to access Teledyne ISCO’s flow measurement experts at any time for help with system installation, configuration, operation, and data validation.​
