The Cipolletti or Trapezoidal Sharp-edge Weir is similar to a rectangular weir with end contractions except that the sides incline outwardly at a slope of 1 horizontal to 4 vertical. This slope causes the discharge to occur essentially as though it were without end contraction. The advantage of this weir is that no correction for end contraction is required. A disadvantage is that measurement accuracy is inherently less than that obtainable with a rectangular suppressed or V-notch weir. The Cipolletti Weir is commonly used in irrigation systems.
