But, for practical purposes, it can be considered completely negligible. These findings imply that, in the tested range of parameters, which can be found in Pagliara and Palermo (2010b), Eq. 6) can satisfactorily predict the totality of data, including those relative to protected basins. It is obvious that the coefficients A and B appearing in Eq. 9, respectively. 8 ENERGY DISSIPATION IN THE PRESENCE OF BOULDERS The dissipative process on a block ramp is deeply influenced by the roughness condition of the ramp itself, as shown in the previous paragraphs.

2, the flow structure is essentially 2D, as proved also by Nashta and Garde (1988), resulting in a FMB jump type. 67, however, the flow structure exhibits intermediate characteristics between 2D and 3D jump types, this region can, thus, be considered a transition field. Increasing the enlargement ratio causes an increase of lateral flow recirculation resulting in a more prominent 3D flow structure (and morphology in the stilling basin). 17a. 17a–b, it is evident that the transition for the asymmetric case occurs for higher densimetric Froude numbers.
