 Navid said: (Apr 22, 2014) In a sharp-crested weir, the thickness of weir is kept less than half of the height of water on the weir.

 Sourav said: (Jan 19, 2017) 2L < H. L < H/2. = length of sharp - crested weir.

 Kamal Jamare said: (Jul 10, 2018) L=H÷2. Length of sharp, hight of water in the weir.

 Shyam Kumar said: (Jun 23, 2019) Please, explain it why?

 Roop Sudarshan Raju said: (Mar 9, 2020) In a sharp-crested weir, the thickness of the weir is kept less than half of the height of water on the weir. B

 Rudy said: (Jul 28, 2020) The thickness of a sharp-crested weir is generally much thinner such as in using a Plate.

 Kavita Choudhary said: (Aug 5, 2021) In a sharp-crested wear, the thickness of the wear should be less than half of the water of wear. Q= 2/3CdL √2g h3/2.

 Kavita said: (Aug 5, 2021) The thickness of the shaft crested wear kept less than half of the height of the water on the wear B
