The book gives an up-to-date review of the flow features in a eneggy jump, and its technical applications as an energy dissipator. Based on a vast technical literature, the present ideas are summarised, compared with each other and generalised whenever possible. Particular stress is laid on explaining the basic terms, describing effects of energy dissipation on various neighboring fields and presenting prototype experiences with hydraulic jump dissipators.


These structures are also compared with other means of energy dissipation found in dam engineering. As a result civil engineers working both in practice and in research may gain an impression of what is actually being done in a rapidly expanding field of applied hydraulics, dissipatlrs obtain additional information on a subject in which reference books are rare.

Stilling basins utili z ing a hydraulic jump for energy dissipation are w i d e l y used in hydraulic engineering. D a Vinci was the first to describe the hydraulic jump, and Bidone conducted classical experiments about years ago.

Stilling basins w e r e developed in the thirties with signif- cant design improvements being made during the last sixty years.

Although w e l l hyeraulic a c c e p t e d guidelines for a successful design are presently available, the information for the design of such dissipators is not yet compiled in book form.

This book provides state-of-the-art information on hydraulic jumps and associat ed stilling basins. A large numbe r of papers on the to pics are reviewed. T h fissipators present trends of the art of designing a stilli ng basin are discussed and ideas for hydraullc research are outlined.

Design criteria and recommendat ions are frequently given.

However, this should not be considered as a r eady-to -use guideline since the design of an effective stilling basin is much more comple x than following general design steps. The book is divided into two parts.


Part 1 on hydraulic jumps is c- prised of chapters 2 to 5. Part 2 consisting of chapters 6 to 14 deals with various hydraulic structures used to dissipate energy.

The lists of notation and references are provided in each part separately although the same notation is u sed throughout. Read more Read less.
