Abstract:

It is shown by simple arguments that is stilling basins, intense turbulence of flows could produce conditions favorable to cavitation. A free hydraulic jump occurring in a stilling basin is one case in which this spontaneous cavitation happens, at last intermittently, if the Froude number of the incoming flow is very large.
