## Classification or Types of Notches and Weirs | Fluid Mechanics

Classification or Types of Notches and Weirs in Fluid Mechanics. A notch means an opening provided in the side of a tank, such that the opening extends even above the free surface of the liquid in the tank. It is in a way, a large orifice having no upper edge. A notch is generally meant to measure the flow of [...]

## Measuring Rainfall: How is Rainfall Measured in India?

Read this article to learn about: How is Rainfall Measured in India? Among all forms of precipitation, rainfall is the common one. It is necessary to know the methods for measuring rainfall and analysing the rainfall data. The amount of rainfall is expressed as depth in centimeters (or millimeters) which falls on a level surface. Intensity of rainfall is the [...]

## Use True Rms Meters | Voltage | Electrical Engineering

Complex waveforms are most accurately measured with a true rms reading voltmeter. This instrument indicates the rms value of any waveform (such as a sine wave, square wave or sawtooth wave) by using an rms detector that responds directly to the heating value of the input signal. To measure the rms value of an arbitrary waveform, we may feed an [...]

## Rms Variation Indices and Its Applications | Electrical Engineering

For many years, the only indices defined to quantify rms variation service quality were the sustained interruption indices (SAIFI, CAIDI, etc.). Sustained interruptions are in fact only one type of rms variation. IEEE Standard 1159-19957 defines a sustained interruption as a reduction in the rms voltage to less than 10 percent of nominal voltage for longer than 1 min. Sustained [...]
