Document Type: Journal Paper


Three classifications of flow are proposed; tranquil, tumbling, and rapid; tranquil and rapid regimes are dominated by subcritical and supercritical flow, respectively; in tumbling regime roughness elements induce supercritical flow over their crests followed by individual hydraulic jumps to tranquil state; criteria for delineating three regimes are proposed.

Subject Headings: Subcritical flow | Supercritical flow | Flumes | Channel flow | Hydraulic roughness | Hydraulic jump
