Several geometric parameters influence weir discharge and it is explained in our present study. The PK weir is more efficient than rectangular labyrinth weir due to reduction in entrance losses of PK weir inlet key geometry. PK weir is a type of labyrinth weir with variation in angle. Therefore, in this paper we also discuss about labyrinth weir. PKW are compatible for constructing on existing or new spillway with lesser space requirement and structural stability. PKW are installed in order to increase the discharge capacity for a given footprint area. PKW is used to increase the overflow capacity of existing dams such as, Hazelmare dam (South Africa), Dartmouth dam (Australia). Trapezoidal piano key weirs have higher discharge efficiency than rectangular weirs and it is due to interference wedge. Cd of TPKW is influenced by L/W but Wi/Wo has least effect.
