Advanced Experiments Bench: Free and Forced Vortex Apparatus
Cussons 66P6238 apparatus allows a wide range of vortex experiments to be conducted. INTRODUCTION When water flows out of a vessel through a central hole in the base, a free vortex is formed, the degree of rotation being dependent on initial disturbance. The water moves spirally towards the centre with streamline motion, so that, neglecting losses caused by viscosity, the energy per unit mass remains constant. If, while the mass of wat..

Basic Flow Experiments Bench: Orifice Experiments
The analysis of the quantity of water which can be discharged through an orifice is arrived at in a simple straightforward manner by the application of Bernoulli's equation. However, experimental tests typically produce a result which is only some 65% of the solution indicated by the simple analysis. The study of water flow through an orifice is therefore a classic topic to illustrate the need for a semi-empirical approach which is so ofte..
