Hydraulic jump

  1. Apr 5, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    http://www.brighthubengineering.com...nnel-flow-basics-hydraulic-jump-calculations/

    In th earlier part of this notes , i was told that the The hydraulic jump is an abrupt transition to subcritical from supercritical flow.

    but , in the diagram , we can see that the hydraulic jump occur when the water from the supercritical enter the subcritical region...
    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
    which is correct ? I think the second part is correct because when the hydralic jump occur , it's usually when the high speed velocity water enter the slower one . In the region of hydraulic jump , the velocity of the subcritical region is lower .

    Hydraulic jump occurs from super to sub critical flow.

    So , the statement that The hydraulic jump is an abrupt transition to subcritical from supercritical flow is wrong ?

    Yes.
