This article deals with the problem of insulating measuring weirs to avoid ice disturbances.

The development of a simple method for insulating a conventional V-weir is described. This method will serve its purpose in many cases. For more difficult cases a special type of a fully insulated weir is described. The experiments described were carried out by The Division of Hydraulic Engineering, The University of Trondheim, The Norwegian Institute of Technology, at the River and Harbour Laboratory of the University, and at the IHD representative basin Sagelva.
