Description

 

This unit provides a recirculation water
supply for a large range of TQ hydraulic experiments. The unit has been
developed over a number of years to make the best use of modern materials,
whilst retaining the best features of earlier models. The unit acts as a sump
tank containing all the water necessary for the experiments, and the flat top of
the unit provides an ideal working surface for the experiments.

 

The submersible pump provides a flow rate
of approximately 60 liters per minute, which can be regulated using a modified
control valve. Water flow passing through the experiment is measured by a
gravimetric system, using a small inner tank, on a pivot arm, counter balanced
by weights. By recording the time taken for the system to achieve balance, flow
rate can be estimated to an accuracy of ±2%.

CAL Software

 

As part of a continuous programmed of
computerization, many of these experiments are supplied complete with a
dedicated TQ Computer Aided Learning Program consisting of a computer disk and a
software manual. Each program provides both Tutorial (text) and Analytical
(tables/graphs) sections thus leading the student clearly through the experiment
and allowing data to be entered as the experiment proceeds. This data can be
saved on disk for later analysis or printed for inclusion in laboratory reports.
Automatic manipulation, reduction and printing of data in this way offer
considerable reduction in laboratory time for both students and lecturers.

 

Supporting Teaching Material

 

A comprehensive laboratory manual covering
the setting up and operation of the H1 Hydraulics Bench is supplied. A
laboratory textbook entitled "A First Course in Hydraulics" by Professor E.
Markland is also supplied free with this equipment.

 

Essential Ancillaries

 

A stopwatch such as the HAC10d is required
to accurately time the water flow.

 

Specification

 

Sump tank capacity: 160 liters

Weigh tank capacity: 40 liters

Weights: 6 x 2kg

 

Pump: submersible type, 0-60
liter/min
