3529. Vertical drop, Vertical fall, Vertical drop structure, or Vertical fall structure : A drop in which the nappe impinges clear into the water cushion (stilling pool) below. There is no glacis or hydraulic jump, and the dissipation of energy is effected by turbulent diffusion as the high velocity jet falls into the pool of the water downstream.
