Computer Controlled Flow Channels.
Computer Controlled Flow Channels Computer Controlled Flow Channels (section: 80 x 300 mm).(several lengths) Exercises and Practical Possibilities to be done with Main Items 1.- Measurement of the water height and the velocity along the channel. 2.- Measurement of the flow with weirs of thin wall. 3.- Measurement of flow with changes in the channel section. 4.- Measurement of flow using Venturi flume. 5.- Control of the flow by gates. 6.- Level control using syphons. 7.- Flow on overflow dams. 8.- Flow among the pillars of a bridge. 9.- Connection of a channel to a culvert. 10.- Characterization of the hydraulic jump. 11.- Profiles of the water free surface. 12.- Investigation of flow and supercritical flow states. 13.- Measurement of water levels. 14.- Discharge processes on an underwater weir. 15.- Amount of energy in flows in open channels. 16.- Function of a syphon weir. 17.- Flow rate and drain coefficients of a syphon weir. 18.- Pipe flows. 19.- Comparison of overflow and syphon weirs. 20.- Observation of the throw of the water. 21.- Generation of different flow states by damming the down-stream water. 22.- Observation of the flow under an undershot weir: -Observation of hydraulic motion on discharge. 23.- Relationship between dam height and discharge. 24.- Observation of discharges under a radial gate: -Observation of hydraulic motion on discharge. 25.- Hydrostatic pressure on a weir. 26.- Investigations on waves. 27.- Behaviour of structures in rough sea. 28.- Applying and understanding Manning’s formula. 29.- Understanding sub- and super-critical flow. 30 Learning how to apply force-momentum and steady flow energy equations to simple flow situations. 31.- Investigation of the transition from running to shooting flow. Additional practical possibilities: 32.- Sensors calibration. 33.- Filling of the Pitot tube. 34.- Filling of the venturi meter with analog output. 35.- Calculation of water flow. 36.- Use of level gauge for measurement of the water height. Other possibilities to be done with this Unit: 37.- Many students view results simultaneously. To view all results in real time in the classroom by means of a projector or an electronic blackboard. 38.- Open Control, Multicontrol and Real Time Control. This unit allows intrinsically and/or extrinsically to change the span, gains; proportional, integral, derivate parameters; etc in real time. 39.- The Computer Control System with SCADA allows a real industrial simulation. 40.- This unit is totally safe as uses mechanical, electrical and electronic, and software safety devices.
