HB 022A FREE AND FORCED VORTEX, Rotating Tank
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

This equipment is designed to produce and measure free and forced vortices. It is to be used with Hydraulics Bench i.e. HB100 or HB100N (separately supplied).

The equipment consists of a clear acrylic cylindrical tank inside which is another smaller perforated clear acrylic cylinder. The tank is rotated by a small motor. A small hole is provided at the center of the bottom of the tank. A forced vortex is formed when a fixed amount of water is contained in the rotating vessel. A free vortex is formed when water is admitted at the annulus and drain through the bottom hole. A cross bar with scale and a sliding probe holder are provided above the vessel. Water surface profile is measured by a depth probe attached to the cross bar. A transparent tube with built-in pitot probe to measure total head is also attached to the cross bar.
