The aim of the foregoing work is the study of the stabilisation of a suddenly falling stream (waterfall) over a rigid damhead, having a closed-off air volume. The dynamic equation is set up for a vertically falling free stream under the influence of a changing pressure p 1 in the air cushion. The form of the streaming thus obtained is compared with a momentary picture (snapshot) assumed in a model waterfall. Using energy considerations the frequency of the self-excited vibrations is determined approximately and compared with the experimental values. Volume compression becomes essential through large air pocket and jet intensity, and from the average stream excursion and volume compression K the stream motion up to a pressure p 2 can be calculated. Nevertheless in the model built the air cushion was so stiff that other effects could operate. For large dams the question of stabilisation is discussed by means of the locus curve of the overall transmission factor p 2/p i with the help of the Strecker-Nyquist criterion.
