Transient drainage processes
Transient drainage processes are taken into consideration e.g.:
- when deciding on the dimensions of storage reservoirs
- in the design of bottom outlets in dams
- when water flows out of a basin into a pipe
- when two fluids with different speeds meet each other
Recording the trajectory of the water jet and discharge coefficients at different outlet velocities.
Horizontal flow from a tank
Recording the trajectory of the water jet at different outlet velocities.
Vertical flow from a tank
Determination of pressure losses and contraction coefficient for different outlet contours.
Free and forced vortex; point gauges to detect surface profiles.
