Title

The effect of submerged jets on the hydraulic jump

Abstract

"Tests were performed in order to determine the effects of forcing submerged jets of water into the base of a hydraulic jump. The specific energy of the water leaving the hydraulic jump, the length of the wave formation properties of the jump which had been modified by the introduction of submerged jets were determined and compared with the same characteristics of a normal hydraulic jump and a hydraulic jump which had been modified by the use of baffle piers. Test results indicate: (a) the quantity of water flowing through the submerged jets is a primary factor in determining the specific energy of the water leaving the hydraulic jump and these jets can be as effective as baffle piers in reducing the specific energy of the water leaving the hydraulic jump; (b) submerged jets can be more effective than baffle piers in reducing the length of the hydraulic jump; (c) submerged jets are not as effective as baffle piers in reducing the wave formation properties of a jump"--Abstract, leaf ii.
