In this study, analytical and Artificial Neural Network (ANN) models’ output of the discharge value, passing over Ogee Spillways, were compared. For this aim, a flume having 7.5 cm width, 15 cm depth and 5 m length, was used in the laboratory. Discharge values above the spillway were measured for different heads. Discharge values were also computed by the formula for the measured heads. An ANN model was set by using the experimental results in order to estimate the discharge value. So, the performance of the ANN model was investigated. As the result, it was seen that ANN model produced very successful output.
