Abstract

An experimental study is performed to investigate the relationship between an unsubmerged water jet impinging onto a horizontal surface and radius of hydraulic jump. Experiments are undertaken over a wide range of pipe Reynolds numbers for which the pipe flow is laminar. The laminar impinging jet produced a smooth circular hydraulic jump, at which the film thickness experienced a sudden increase in thickness. Effects of various parameters on a stable and stationary hydraulic jump are studied. The impingement point radius ri is taken as a characteristic length of the film flow, and correlations are obtained for radius of hydraulic jump in terms of various dimensionless parameters.
