Abstract

The circular hydraulic jump is a product of the impingement of a vertical, circular jet upon a smooth horizontal surface. Previous studies of this phenomenon have used methods such as electrical contact probes, photography, and lasers to measure various features. This study utilizes X-ray computed tomography (CT) to visualize the circular hydraulic jump; analysis is then completed on the reconstructed 3D image. Time-averaged data of the film thickness before and after the jump and the jump radius, as measured from the X-ray CT images, compare well with available literature. Potential imaging improvements with the current equipment have been identified, particularly with respect to measuring film thickness.
