Technical Specification
During deceleration, acceleration and deflection of a flowing fluid, there is a change of velocity and thus a change in momentum. Changes in momentum result in forces. In practice, the motive forces are used to convert kinetic energy into work done. The experimental unit includes a transparent tank, a nozzle, four interchangeable deflectors with different deflection angles and a weight-loaded scale. The force of the water jet is adjusted via the flow rate. Experiments study the influence of flow velocity and flow rate as well as of different deflection angles. The jet forces generated by the water jet are measured on the weight-loaded scale. The forces are calculated using the momentum equation and compared with the measurements. The experimental unit is positioned easily and securely on the work surface of the FM-430 Hydraulic Bench. The water is supplied and the flow rate measured by FM-430 Hydraulic Bench. Alternatively, the experimental unit can be operated by the laboratory supply.
