Hydraulics Laboratory is part of a unique research facility designed for hydraulic model studies, hydraulic performance testing and research in the fields of open channel and closed conduit hydraulics.Studies that can be undertaken:
Scour and sediment transport studies
Channel stability of rivers
Porous media flow
River diversion structures
Embankment and dam formation erosion
Facilities and equipment on site can test valves, flow meters, and pumps for:
Energy output and efficiency
Name of Practical
To verify the momentum equation using the experimental set-up on diffusion of submerged air jet.
Impact of jet App
To determine the coefficient of discharge of an orifice of a given shape. Also to determine the coefficient of velocity and the coefficient of contraction of the orifice mouth piece.
Orifice meter App
To calibrate an orifice meter, venturimeter, and bend meter and study the variation of the co-efficient of discharge with the Reynolds number.
Orifice meter venturemeter & bend meter App
To study the transition from laminar to turbulent flow and to determine the lower critical Reynolds number.
Reynold Apparatus App
To study the velocity distribution in a pipe and also to compute the discharge by integrating the velocity profile.
Velocity distribution in pipe
To study the variation of friction factor, „f‟ for turbulent flow in commercial pipes.
Friction factor App
To study the boundary layer velocity profile over a flat plate and to determine the boundary layer thickness
