HF 502 SEDIMENT FLOW CHANNEL, 75 mm. wide
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

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.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS

  • Flow structures.
  • Local scour.
  • Mechanics of sediment transport.
  • Bed form hysteresis.
