Multipurpose teaching flume
Study of uniform and non-uniform discharge, flow formulae, flow transition (hydraulic jump), energy dissipation (hydraulic jump, stilling basin), flow over control structures: weirs (sharp-crested, broad-crested, ogee-crested), discharge under gates, flow-measuring flumes, local losses due to obstacles, transient flow: waves, vibrating piles, and sediment transport
Studying the usage and performance of hydraulic bench and to measure the rate of flow by observing level difference in the storage tank.
Fluid Friction Apparatus
Determination of pressure loss due to friction and friction coefficient in a rough pipe and smooth pipes of different diameters.
Study of the main properties and the behavior of liquids under hydrostatic conditions
Dead Weight Calibrator
Calibration a Bourdon Pressure Gauge using patron equipment of calibrated weights.
Flow over Weirs
Study the flow characteristics through rectangular and V shaped (triangular) weirs made on a thin wall with sharp threshold.
Flow Meter Demonstration
Calibration of venturimeter and orifice meter and use it for finding the discharge through a pipe.
Determination of position of the Centre of Pressures on a flat surface partially / fully submerged in a liquid at rest.
