Broad-crested weirs (BCW) are often used in hydraulic engineering and water management. The most complex factor that affects the discharge capacity of BCW is the discharge coefficient. In Ukrainian engineering practice, the flow rate of BCW is defined as a function of the relative height of the spillway wall, while in the most common European methods – as a function of the relative length of the weir. The experimental dependences of the discharge coefficient of rectangular sharp-edged BCW with vertical inlet and outlet walls with the ratio of the weir length and height d/Р = 2; 4 are obtained. A comparison of the obtained results with the values of the discharge coefficient of the same BCW using the methods of Kumin and Hager indicates that this coefficient depends on both the height of the wall and the length of the weir. The corresponding empirical power law dependences are obtained. At the same values of the relative height of the wall, the discharge coefficient for the weir with the ratio d/Р = 4 is significantly lower comparing the weir with d/Р = 2, that can be explained by the more significant effect of friction resistance for the weir with longer threshold.
