# Fluid Mechanics Questions and Answers – Types of Hydraulic Jumps

«
»

This set of Fluid Mechanics Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Types of Hydraulic Jumps”.

1. When a shallow water flowing radially slows down due to______
a) Friction
b) Temperature
c) Pressure
d) Volume

Explanation: The water that flowing radially slows down due to friction in the fluid. This happens as the fluid grows shallower, which keeps it dilatory. Due to this, the Froude number drops to the point where the jump occurs.

2. Changes in the behaviour of the jump can be observed by changing the _______
a) Temperature
b) Pressure
c) Flow rate
d) Volumetric changes

Explanation: Hydraulic pump is a phenomenon in science that deals with hydraulics. It is observed in in an open channel flow. It depends on the initial speed and flow rate of the fluid. Thus, option Pressure is the correct answer.

3. Which hydraulic jump is used in abysmal fan formation?
a) Shallow fluid
b) Internal wave
c) External wave
d) Atmospheric

Explanation: Hydraulic jump is not possible when the initial speed is less than the critical speed. There is a transition that is created during the change. The transition appears as an undulating wave. Turbidity currents result in internal hydraulic jumps.

4. Which among the following is a parameter that does not account for a change of Internal hydraulic jump?
a) Temperature
b) Salinity
c) Density
d) Depth

Explanation: Depth is a parameter that does not play a role in the hydraulic jump. The internal hydraulic jump have association with temperature induced stratification, salinity and density differences due to suspended materials.

5. When the hydraulic jump is in a moving form it is called _________
a) Negative surge
b) Positive surge
c) Turbulent surge
d) Accelerated surge

Explanation: When the hydraulic jump is dynamic or in a moving form it is called as positive surge. Hydraulic jump can be stationery or dynamic. Hydraulic jump can be described using the same analytical approaches.

6. Where is hydraulic jump used in industrial applications?
a) Spillways
b) Pipes
c) Pumps
d) Filters

Explanation: The hydraulic jump is one of the most used design choices by engineers in industrial applications. It is used to dissipate energy in spillways and outlets. A well-defined outlet can produce 60 to 70 percent energy.

7. When a shallow water flowing radially slows down due to ______
a) Friction
b) Temperature
c) Pressure
d) Volume

Explanation: The water that flowing radially slows down due to friction in the fluid. This happens as the fluid grows shallower, which keeps it dilatory. Due to this, the Froude number drops to the point where the jump occurs.

8. With the increase in speed of the surface tension, the waves bleed of ________
a) Zero frequency
b) High frequency
c) Low frequency
d) Equal to one

Explanation: With the increase in speed of the surface tension, the waves bleed of High frequency. It makes an undular jump into a dominant form. The flow depth is just enough that the surface tension can be no longer neglected.
