HB 020 IMPACT OF A JET
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

This equipment provides measurement of force developed by a water jet on different stationary targets. It is to be used with Hydraulics Bench i.e. HB100 or HB100N (separately supplied).

The equipment consists of a removable clear acrylic cylinder. Water is supplied through a tube at the bottom of the cylinder and discharged vertically through a nozzle onto a target plate. Each plate maintains the same working distance from the nozzle. A clear acrylic guard is provided to prevent water jet from splashing on the target. Force on the plate pushes its stem upward. Dead weight is then applied on the stem to counter balance the force exerted by the water jet. This balance is indicated by a pointer on a steel rod next to the weight. The apparatus rests on adjustable footings and a bull’s eye level is provided.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS

Determination of the reaction of a jet striking different targets mounted normal to the jet direction, at different flow rates
