8.3.1 Garber's model

Energy is known to dissipate in a hydraulic jump in which case the equal sign in equation ([*]) does not apply and the criterion for a nonsplashing operation would read


A considerable amount of research work has been carried out on this wave, which is known in the scientific literature as the hydraulic jump. The hydraulic jump phenomenon has been studied for the past 200 years. Unfortunately, Garber, ( and later other researchers in die casting - such as Brevick and his students from Ohio State University [#!poro:BrevickGarber!#], [#!poro:brevickIndina!#])14, ignored the previous research. This is the real reason that their model never works.
