Abstract

Various methods exist to stabilize asymmetric hydraulic jumps occurring in suddenly expanding channels. In this study, the effects of the interaction of multiple submerged counter flow jets are investigated experimentally in terms of the hydrodynamic characteristics of the flow resulting in the tailwater channel. To this aim, three-dimensional flow velocities downstream of the jet system were measured for different configurations of the device. The stability in the performance of the dissipation system under variable tailwater conditions was analyzed in terms of flow velocity distribution, turbulent kinetic energy, turbulence intensity and Reynolds shear stresses. The results reveal the good performance of the investigated system in preventing the phenomena of flow instability associated with suddenly expanding channels.
