Document Type: Journal Paper


An analysis of the critical dimensions of 36 existing hydraulic jump stilling basins and hydraulic model verification tests are used to generalize the design of a stilling basin, utilizing chute blocks and an end still. Tail water ranges, jump lengths, water surface profiles, etc., values are provided in dimensionless forms.
