HB 019 ORIFICE AND JET FLOW
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

This equipment allows determination of coefficient of velocity and coefficient of discharge under various constant heads for two different orifice diameters. Comparison of jet trajectory with that by theory of mechanics can also be made. The equipment is to be used with Hydraulics Bench i.e. HB100 or HB100N (separately supplied).

The equipment consists of a removable clear acrylic cylinder with sharp edge orifice installed at and flush with the  lower inside wall of the cylinder. An adjustable overflow allows various constant heads for the test and trajectory of the jet is indicated by probes on the jet path. Heights of the probes are indicated by scales. The apparatus rests on adjustable footings and a level gauge is provided.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • Comparison of the actual and theoretical outlet velocity
  • Calculation of discharge coefficient
  • Determination of the contraction and velocity coefficients
  • Determination of discharge characteristics (jet trajectory) for an orifice mounted in the side of a vertical tank and comparison with simple theory
