Hi Everyone!

I am doing a simulation in open channel where near the outlet, I have installed flow baffles. However, the velocity increases considerably across the baffles and there is a significant head loss as well. I am attaching some pics to explain my situation better.

Can someone tell why this is happening or how the velocity can be controlled?
Flow- 400 lps, outlet dimensions- 750(w) x 900(d)
