Air-Water Flow Properties in Hydraulic Jumps on a Positive Slope

Author(s): Laura Montano, Stefan Felder

Linked Author(s): Stefan Felder

Keywords: Air-water flow properties, energy dissipation, flow patterns, hydraulic jump, positive slope

Abstract: Hydraulic jumps occur at the transition from supercritical to subcritical flows. They are characterised by generation of vortices, three-dimensional motions, high turbulence, air entrainment and strong energy dissipation. While there has been considerable
