Energy Dissipators and Hydraulic Jump PDF
Part of the Water Science and Technology Library series
Stilling basins utili z ing a hydraulic jump for energy dissipation are w i d e l y used in hydraulic engineering .
D a Vinci was the first to describe the hydraulic jump, and Bidone conducted classical experiments about 170 years ago .
Stilling basins w e r e developed in the thirties with signif- cant design improvements being made during the last sixty years .
Although w e l l - a c c e p t e d guidelines for a successful design are presently available, the information for the design of such dissipators is not yet compiled in book form .
This book provides state-of-the-art information on hydraulic jumps and associat ed stilling basins .
A large numbe r of papers on the to pics are reviewed.
T h e present trends of the art of designing a stilli ng basin are discussed and ideas for future research are outlined.
Design criteria and recommendat ions are frequently given .
However, this should not be considered as a r eady-to -use guideline since the design of an effective stilling basin is much more comple x than following general design steps .
The book is divided into two parts. Part 1 on hydraulic jumps is c- prised of chapters 2 to 5.
Part 2 consisting of chapters 6 to 14 deals with various hydraulic structures used to dissipate energy.
The lists of notation and references are provided in each part separately although the same notation is u sed throughout.
