A Notch is regarded as an orifice with water level below its upper edge. Notch is made of a metallic plate and its use is to measure the discharge of liquids. These are used for measuring the flow of water from a vessel or tank with no pressure flow.

A trapezoidal notch is a combination of a rectangular notch and two triangular notches as shown in figure. It is, thus obvious that the discharge over such a notch will be the sum of the discharge over the rectangular and triangular notches.
