The fluid mechanics range offers a wide scope of teaching equipment for the delivery of complete courses in fluid dynamics.
In many settings, the modular Digital Hydraulic Bench acts as a base unit, allowing tutors to swap out individually mounted experiment modules on these self-contained benches, reducing lab set-up time, lab space requirements, and cost.
The impressive flow and sediment channels for demonstrating the mechanics of flow also enable the practical teaching and demonstration of phenomena such as critical and sub critical flow, hydraulic jump, and dune formation. There are many ancillaries available for use with the flow channels enabling them to be used as both teaching and research aids.
Within the fluid mechanics range there is equipment for demonstrating Bernoulli’s theorem, the function and dynamics of weirs, pressure and flow measurement, pipe friction and energy loss, and much more.
An open channel flume that provides students with the ability to study the varying effects for sediment transport, bedform dynamics and fluid flow in an open channel.
Francis Turbine for use with the MFP101 Centrifugal Pump Module.
Propeller Turbine for use with the MFP101 Centrifugal Pump Module.
Pelton Wheel (turbine) for use with the MFP101 Centrifugal Pump Module.
Turbine dynamometer for use with the MFP101 Centrifugal Pump Test Set and optional turbines
Allows a student to study and perform tests on a centrifugal pump and optional turbines: to understand how they work and calculate their performance.
An apparatus to allow students to investigate the forces produced by a water jet striking a flat or a curved surface.
An educational Venturi tube that allows students to study the Venturi meter and Bernoulli's Theorem and to make direct comparisons between the results obtained by experimentation and those predicted by theory.
A floor standing apparatus to allow students to investigate the phenomena of laminar, transitional and turbulent flows in pipe systems.
