Hydraulic Jump Experiment
SUMMARY
The Objective of this experiment is to observe the flow patterns and behaviour of the water before after the jump Also to quantify the energy lost due to a hydraulic jump. The observed and theoretical ratios of upstream and downstream depths will be compared, this will show the limitations to purely theoretical analysis.
The experiment showed that a hydraulic jump occurs when when liquid at high velocity discharges into a zone of lower velocity, a rather abrupt rise occurs in the liquid surface. The rapidly flowing liquid is abruptly slowed and increases in height.
The results clearly show the limitations of purely theoretical and purely experimental analysis due to the range of*…show more content…*

Hydraulic jump occurs when the supercritical flow occurs in a channel of which normal flow condition is subcritical.
h2/h1 = ½ (√(1+8F12 )- 1) (4)
The Froude number is calculated using this equation:
F1 = √(q2/gh12) (5)
The hydraulic jump, also known as standing wave, is a rapid transition from supercritical flow to subcritical flow. The transition is generally a turbulent process with a significant energy loss(∆E). that can not be neglected. A hydraulic jump is commonly used to dissipate energy, and reduce the downstream velocity.
To calculate the specific energy at the two separate heights this equation is used:
E = h1 + q2/2gh12 (6)
The total energy loss can be derived as
ΔE = E1 –E2 (7)
To find the height of the jump between the smallest and largest heights:
Δh = h2 – h1 (8)
Finally, the length of the hydraulic jump is given by:
L = 5Δh (9)

1240 Words | 5 PagesLaboratory Report for Sluice Gate and Hydraulic Jump Introduction. In this lab exercise we were supposed to analyse the Hydraulic jump through the Sluice gate, and to discuss about the energy displacement through that process. Hydraulic jump is known as the change flow which changes from the supercritical flow to the sub-critical flow, this change occurs due to the loss turbulence in an open tunnel. In basic terms this happens when there is a sudden rise in the water levels, due to the

These results imply that a more supercritical upstream flow in D1, will produce a larger downstream depth, D2, and thus a larger hydraulic jump. The results of the experiment confirm the following relationships a. D2/D1 > 1, the depth increases across the jump so that D2 > D1 b. F2 < 1, downstream flow must be subcritical c. F1 > 1, upstream flow must be supercritical It is observed that length of the jump Lj/D2 ratio also increases

The effect of different gate sill heights on contraction coefficient, discharge coefficient, submerged jump length, backup water depth, flow energy dissipation, and velocity distribution with different hydraulic parameters were analyzed and graphically presented. A combination of dimensional and regression analysis tools was

According to the manufacturer’s catalog, the hydraulic motor was only designed to work best at high pressure. Also, “High pressure Viton shaft seals eliminate the need for case drain” (Sheaf, 2013, para.3.). During the working of the hydraulic system, it was observed that the pressure in the system was found to be in “between 1,500 to 2,000 psi” (para.3) instead of 3,000 according to the catalog

Hydraulic fracking happens when a liquid fluid such as water, oil and acid just to name a few is used to fracture rocks to release gas. The water brought in is mixed with sand and chemicals to create fracking fluid. Approximately 40,000 gallons of chemicals are used per fracturing (9). Pneumatic fracking has the same concept as hydraulic fracking except instead of using liquid base fluids it uses
