Abstract: Hydraulic jump is frequently used for dissipation excess energy downstream of hydraulic structure. This abundance energy, whenever left unchecked, will have unfavorable impact on the banks and downstream of the channel bed. In this paper hydraulic jump characteristics are experimentally evaluated and empirical correlations for depth ratio and relative height are produced in sloping channel by adopting the impact of both strategy Froude number and approaching Reynolds number and neglecting the frictional effect. The developed empirical correlations are validated using Gandhi (2014) data. The present correlation of jump characteristics gives better agreement with experimental data and can be used for preliminary design.
