A circular jump forms in the radial flow thickness when a downwards stream hits a horizontal plate. Centre manifold theory is used to rigorously derive, from the Navier-Stokes equations, a dynamic model for slow horizontal variations of flow thickness and velocity. An advantage of this approach is the capacity to study non-stationary regimes and examine stability of the flow. Numerical solutions of the model reproduce experimentally observed recirculation under the jump and quantitatively agree with experiments of laminar flows.
