A study by Fairman showed that the optimum weights calculated by Venable's method performs better in most cases in comparison with those calculated using the Stern's correction method. However, the Venable method is an iterative method. Although these weights are effective in reducing computation errors, the method is difficult to implement. In this study, a simple analytical method is described for computing optimum weights. Its performance was tested together with the other methods. The results showed that the optimum weights from the new method performs equally well or better compared with the Venable's optimum weights.
