The H-Flume is most commonly used to monitor agricultural field runoff and plot studies. The design of H-type flumes uses features of both flumes and weirs. The bottom is flat and unobstructed like a flume so silt and sediment will pass through more freely. However, the flow is controlled so it can be measured, by discharging through a sharp-edged opening like a weir, that is cut at an angle sloping back against the oncoming flow. In fact, H-type flumes are more weir than flume. Flume size is determined by the depth or height of the flume at its entrance. There are three types of H flumes: HS flumes to measure small flows having maximum flow rates from 0.08 to 0.82 cfs; HL flumes for large flows with maximum, flow rates from 57.0 to 117.0 cfs; and H flumes, which are probably used more frequently, for the mid-range with maximum flow rates from 0.3 to 84.0 cfs. (0.009 to .085 m/s).
