Fluid Mechanics Laboratory

Equipped to perform and demonstrate a number of experiments that provide undergraduate students with the practical applications of fluid mechanics, facilities

Equipped to perform and demonstrate a number of experiments that provide undergraduate students with the practical applications of fluid mechanics, facilities include:

  •  Hydrostatic pressure apparatus to measure hydrostatic forces on submerged bodies;
  •  Orifice and jet apparatus to allow students to compare between actual and jet trajectories, calculate the coefficient of discharge for various orifices, and identify different methods of flow measurement;
  • Fluid friction, bends and fitting apparatus to allow students to determine major and minor losses in pipes;
  • Pipe network apparatus to measure flow and pressure drops in a wide range of network configuration, e.g. individual pipes, series pipes and parallel pipes;
  • Flow visualization channel for conducting several applications in open channels such as hydraulic jump, discharge under sluice gate and energy equation;
  • Osborne Reynold’s apparatus facilitating the demonstration of laminar and turbulent flow.
