abstract={Abstract: Weir is usually used in different hydraulic purposes, mainly for head discharge-water relationship in channels. In this research, the flow has been carried out over the side of spillway using three cases of crest inclination by means of increasing one side of the weir a half centimeter each time with constant crest length equal to 15 cm. This means that the angle θ equals to (1.91˚, 3.82˚ and 5.71˚) respectively towards of the flow and is opposite to the flow with decreasing a half centimeter. Also in case of the breadth is horizontal (θ=0), seven cases have been tested. It is known that the greater amount of discharge occurs when the breadth is horizontal (θ=0). In case of the inclination of the weir is inclined opposite to the flow direction, the discharge is greater than that of which the weir inclined towards the flow direction for all cases of inclination. The greater discharge was obtained when decreasing the angle, which is opposite to the flow direction. The amount of discharge over the side of weir decreases by increasing the angle of the slope opposite to the direction of the flow and become more decreasing in case the inclination of side weir towards the flow. In case of increasing the angle of inclination in flow direction, the amount of discharge over side weir will be decreased. The effect of Froude number has also studied with the discharge coefficient and found that, they are proportionally related to each other. Also the water surface profile along the side spillway weir is studied and taken under consideration theoretically and experimentally in this research.}
