HM 164: Flume for Open and Closed Flow

Print Ask to this Articlel

Flume for Open and Closed Flow

Flume for Open and Closed Flow

Product Details

Technical Description
The HM 164 enables experiments to be performed on open and closed flumes. In the open flume the flow processes at various weir structures can be investigated. By means of straightforward reconfiguration, it is possible to create a closed flume. In this way basic experiments on pipe flow or on flow processes in a culvert can also be made on the unit. The integrated, height adjustable ramp can be used for both flumes: in the open channel it is used as a further underwater weir, while in the closed flume it causes a change in the flow cross-section and thus facilitates the investigation of different flow conditions. In this way a large range of experiments can be performed with a unit of straightforward design.

Learning Objectives / Experiments
Open flume:
· Flow over weir structures
· Flow over a wide crested weir (sharp or rounded)
· Flow over a narrow crested weir
· Flow underneath an undershoot weir
· Transition from subcritical flow to supercritical flow (”hydraulic jump”)
· Supercritical / subcritical flow
Closed flume:
· Measurements of static pressure and total pressure in a pipe flow (closed flume with full flow)
· Flow through a closed flume with constant cross-section
· Flow through a closed flume with changing cross-section
