Fluid Mechanics

The Fluid Mechanics Teaching Laboratory is equipped for studying incompressible fluid media. The are a number of experiments that the students are exposed to:

1) Fluid Statics

2) BERNOULLI's Theorem

3) REYNOLD-OSBOURNE

4) Pumps in Series/Parallel

5) Sharp-Crested Weirs

6) Pipe Friction (various diameters, roughness, minor losses)

7) Design of an Outfall Diffuser (computer lab experiment) 

8) The laboratory also contains a tilting flume 52 ft. long for Open Channel experiments
