FM-116 | Flow Channel

  • Compatible with FM-430 Hydraulic Bench
  • Demonstrates basic phenomena associated with open channel flow
  • Visualizes flow patterns over or around an immersed object
  • LxWxH: 850x300x500mm
Technical Specification
The channel consists of a clear acrylic working section of large depth-to-width ratio incorporating undershot and overshot weirs at the inlet and discharge ends respectively. Water is fed to the streamlined channel entry via a stilling tank to reduce turbulence. Water discharging from the channel is collected in the volumetric tank of the hydraulics bench and returned to the sump for re-circulation. FM-116 | Flow Channel A dye injection mechanism integrated at the entrance of the channel facilitates flow visualization in tandem with a grid pattern situated on the rear surface of the channel. Models supplied with the channel include broad and sharp-crested weirs, large and small-diameter cylinders and symmetrical and asymmetrical aerofoils. These in conjunction with the inlet and discharge weirs, permit a varied range of open channel and flow visualization demonstrations, Adjustable feet permit leveling.
