The erosive power of a free-falling high-velocity water jet, flowing from a dam spillway, could create a scour hole downstream of the dam, endangering the foundation of the dam. Despite extensive research since the 1950s, there is presently no universally agreed method to predict accurately the equilibrium scour depth caused by plunging jets at dams. These formulae yield a large range of equilibrium scour dimensions. The hydrodynamics of plunging jets and the subsequent scour of a rectangular,doi:10.17159/2309-8775/2020/v62n3a4 fatcat:ntnwlfyt45hwvlmdyaqcxco5na
