HB 017 PIPE FRICTION
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

This equipment measures pressure drop when water flows through a vertical pipe at various flow rates both laminar and turbulent. It is to be used with Hydraulics Bench i.e. HB100 or HB100N (separately supplied).

It consists of adjustable constant head water source of removable clear acrylic cylinder for laminar flow. Turbulent flow may be achieved by directly connecting the pipe to the Hydraulics Bench water supply. A water manometer with a vent valve, a hand air pump and a differential pressure gauge are provided for measurement of pressure drop. A valve at the outlet is used to control outlet pressure.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • Investigations of laminar and turbulent flows
  • Demonstration and measurement in a change of the laws of resistance (friction factor) from laminar to turbulent flow
