Document Type: Journal Paper
Experimental data is presented on fluctuating pressures in models of spillway stilling basins. Of special interest are data on (1) Variation of pressure fluctuations with location in the basin, (2) variation of fluctuations with discharge, and (3) the growth of a pressure pulse as flow passes through the upstream portion of the hydraulic jump. Pressure fluctuations up to plus or minus 40% of the incident-velocity head were measured during the tests.
