Jean-Marie Clement – OSTIV Speaker

Observed by Leonardo da Vinci in 1480, first scientifically identified and put into equations by Giorgio Bidone in 1819, revisited by William Froude in 1850, what we call today the Hydraulic jump has remained for centuries in the minds of hydrodynamic experts for designing channels, dams and hulls, always strictly related to water. More than one century later, in 1970, as a paper machinery designer, I had to read again M. Bidone’s theory when designing the world’s fastest paper machine, it was a success, and M. Bidone got out of my mind.
