Base Module for Experiments in Fluid Mechanics

The Series of devices permits a varied experimental cross-section in the fundamentals of fluid mechanics. The base module provides the basic equipment for individual experiments:

the supply of water in the closed circuit; the determination of volumetric flow rate and the positioning of the experimental unit on the working surface of the base module and the collection of dripping water.

The closed water circuit consists of the underlying storage tank with a powerful immersion pump and the measuring tank arranged above, in which the returning water is collected.

The measuring tank is stepped, for larger and smaller volumetric flow rates. A measuring beaker is used for very small volumetric flow rates. The volumetric flow rates are measured using a stopwatch.

The top work surface enables the various experimental units to be easily and safely positioned. A small flume is integrated in the work surface, in which experiments with weirs are conducted.
