Throughout study discharge was distributed uniformly over channel width; bucket exit angle of 45° was used throughout; both 1 on 1 and 1 on 2 entrance slope were investigated; general performance characteristics delineated; required bucket radii for various service conditions are specified; energy dissipation effectiveness is demonstrated in comparison with tailwater requirements for hydraulic jump in horizontal channel.
