Leslie Hanna. 2011. "Velocity Corrections for Froude-scaled Physical Models of Stilling Basins". Bureau of Reclamation, Report Number HL-2011-06.

Abstract: This paper tries to present a generalized method for computing a discharge correction function that could be used to adjust discharge in a physical model to better represent prototype flow conditions at the downstream end of Reclamation type II hydraulic jump stilling basins. This may be useful not only for flow deflector design but also to represent stilling basin flow conditions more accurately for other reasons including predicting the potential for erosion downstream from a basin.
