This is a self-contained bench top open channel for studying bed forms with change in flow and slope as well as flow phenomena without sediment.
The channel is of a rectangular cross-section supported by steel frame. The channel sides are made of clear acrylic with tilting controlled by a manual screw jack. A stainless-steel head tank with a stilling baffle provides a smooth flow.
The water is discharged from the channel via a built-in rectangular weir to the storage tank. A fine strainer is provided in the storage tank to trap the sand sediment.
Instruction manual is also included.
