Formula is presented for theoretical flow through sharp crested circular weirs which involves use of elliptic functions; tables appended give summary of available experimental data with discharge coefficients, flow through weirs of various diameters based on these coefficients and values of elliptic functions involved by which flow through circular weir of any diameter may be found.
