Document Type: Journal Paper
Where the Froude number of the incoming flow is low, the hydraulic jump produces objectionable waves downstream. This study generalizes the design of two stilling basins and two types of wave suppressors for stabilizing the water surface. Sample problems are used to illustrate the design procedures recommended.
