Ski jump - jet trajectory (5)

  • Ski jump - jet trajectory (5)

This photo shows a ski jump investigation with circular-shaped flip buckets in a hydraulic model at VAW. The water jet downstream of a flip bucket of radius 0.40 m and deflection angle 30° results from an approach water depth of 0.05 m and an approach flow Froude number of 10. The recirculation flow depth under the jet is small. The jet reaches the maximum channel height.

This web site was launched by Prof. Michele Mossa of the Polytechnic University of Bari (Italy) with the initial support of Fondazione Caripuglia, Bari, Italy for the Research Project LIC-MON of 2003 and of the Project IMCA (Integrated Monitoring of Coastal Areas) financed by MIUR PON D.M. 593/00. Later, the initiative was supported with other Prof. Michele Mossa’s funds, most recently provided by the RITMARE Project.
