Nomograms are developed to give complete graphical solutions to the implicit hydraulic jump equation for flow in trapezoidal and triangular channels as well as the explicit equation for a hydraulic jump in a rectangular channel. The nomograms were constructed by combining alignment charts which solve the linearized components of the equation to graphical plots containing a graphical representation of the nonlinear components of the equation.
