Fluid Mechanics Laboratory: Force of a Jet Page 1 of 2 STEVENS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY CHARLES V. SCHAEFER, JR. SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING MECHANICAL ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT FLUID MECHANICS LABORATORY FORCE OF A JET PURPOSE The objective of this experiment is to determine, both theoretically and experimentally, the force on a deflect- ing surface, which is placed in the path of a circular fluid jet. APPARATUS Plates (of any of several shapes: flat, etc.) can be mounted on a vertical rod. The rod transmits any force on the plate (as well as the weight of the plate) to the “force balance” on which the plate and rod are mounted. The force balance is a digital scale with a capacity of 60 kN . In addition to a flat plate, two curved plates and two cones are provided. The curved plates split the jet in two and turn the flow. One of these plates turns the flow through an angle of about 90 o , and the other turns the flow through an angle of about 160 o . These plates are modeled on the “buckets” of Pelton impulse turbines 1 . The two cones available also turn the flow impinging on them, specifically through 45
