The mean flow characteristics of two-dimensional turbulent jets diffusing on sloping floors under submergence have been examined. The turbulent wall-jet model was used to derive simple power-law type mathematical expressions for the decay of jet velocity, growth of jet and the bed shear stress distribution. These mathematical predictions were compared with the experimental observations. Observations were also made on the velocity distribution in the boundary layer and presented graphically.
