Article (Published version)
MetadataShow full item record
This paper is concerned with ski jump design for overflow dams and chute spillways. Despite the vast scope of literature on this subject, research in this field is still needed. Three important issues are addressed: take-off angle, length of the jet trajectory and choking flow. The aim is to summarise existing experience, present new formulae for convenient design and propose directions for future research.
