"At present, the use of the free jet impacting on a stilling basin as an energy dissipator is not very common, as there is very little information available concerning this particular field. However, if conditions are favorable, this type of energy dissipator will be quite economical to construct.
In this paper it was found that the hydraulic behavior of the free jet impacting on a stilling basin can be determined to a degree which may be considered accurate for practical purposes. It was also shown that given the free jet velocity, the magnitudes of the velocities at the critical points inside the stilling basin can be computed by means of the equations presented"--Abstract, page 1.
