A typical detention pond design will include an overflow weir for safely passing high inflows downstream. In many cases, an engineer will design the weir using a one-dimensional (1D) hydraulic model with “textbook” weir coefficients.

These commonly-accepted values are based on lab tests and measurements, and are limited by certain assumptions (for example, flow is assumed to be uniformly distributed across the weir). The following case study illustrates how 3D modeling software can provide...
