Abstract

Hydraulic jumps, plunging jets and stepped channels are generally used as energy dissipators and self-aerators. Accordingly, it is expected to find a positive correlation between the aeration efficiency and energy dissipation. For this purpose, hydraulic jump self-aeration efficiency has been investigated with the function of energy dissipation rate per unit width. The hydraulic jump data revealed a positive linear relationship between the aeration efficiency and energy dissipation rate. This new procedure could have practical implications for predicting hydraulic jump aeration efficiency.
