A hydraulic jump occurs when water in an open channel is flowing supercritical and is
slowed by a deepening of the channel or obstruction in the channel. The slowing causes the

Fundamentals of
open-channel flow
Open channels are natural or manmade conveyance structures that normally
have an open top, and they include rivers, streams and estuaries. An important
characteristic of open-channel flow is that it has a free surface a
