HB 026 LAMINAR FLOW APPARATUS
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

This equipment is designed to study laminar flow in two dimensions. It is to be used with Hydraulics Bench i.e. HB100 or HB100N (separately supplied).

Two horizontal plates are placed closely together with seals on side edges. The top plate is transparent and has a transparent grid to help observe stream line patterns. This plate is removable to insert or remove models. The bottom plate has small holes which are connected by valves to a water supply or source and a drain or sink. Water is admitted through a diffuser at one end and drained at the other end. Stream lines are produced by regulating a flow of dye from a reservoir through a series of very small holes at the upstream end.

The set rests on adjustable screw supports with bull’s eye level
