At first, in this paper the outflow process of an upstream inclined grid with longitudinal bars is studied using the dimensional analysis and the incomplete self-similarity theory. Then, the theoretical analysis showed that a power equation can be used for establishing the stage-discharge equation. The coefficient and an exponent of the power equation depend on the slope angle and the void ratio. Finally, this new stage-discharge is tested using measurements obtained by laboratory runs carried out in this investigation.
