tional hydraulics in the analysis
and design of supercritical flow in curved
canals connected with stilling basins, in
order to make the hydraulic jump stable
Department of Hydraulic and Environmental
Engineering, Polytechnical University of Valencia,
The aim of this research is to provide the hydraulic engineer with a dual-
purpose tool capable of analysing the hydraulic behaviour of supercritical flows
in curved canals and, where necessary, determining the operating instabilities
of downstream stilling basins and, establishing appropiate design modifications
interactively with the modelling system developer, to stabilise the hydraulic
jump in the stilling basins over the whole range of operating discharges.
In many hydraulic projects is necessary to make the canal route suitable to
geological and topographical factors, which involves the building of steep-
sloped and plan-curved can...
