This equipment provides laminar, transitional, and turbulent flow as predicted by Osborne Reynolds. It is to be used with Hydraulics Bench i.e. HB100 or HB100N (separately supplied).
It consists of a removable clear acrylic cylinder with an adjustable overflow pipe. Water is admitted at the bottom of the tank through a diffuser and stilling materials, and is discharged via a bell mouth transparent vertical test pipe with a flow control valve at the end. Flow rate is measured by a measuring cup. A dye injection system is installed on top of the acrylic cylinder tank and flow patterns in the pipe can be observed against a white background plate.
