The roughness elements are efficient tools to control the features of the hydraulic jump in the rectangular stilling basins. The present study suggests the use of modified elements to control the features of the free jump. The proposed tool is an incomplete circular pile. The use of piles in a one row with the different setup has been investigated. The measurements showed that the case of piles with the comparative summation areas A/∆=6.72 and the comparative distances between piles X/H1 =0.0 reduced the comparative height and length of the free jump by 11% and 24.6%, respectively. The paper detected the necessary helpful statistical formulas for the phenomenon.
