PURPOSE OF EXPERIMENT: The purpose of the lab is to demonstrate how the velocity profile in a flow can be measured and used to determine the volumetric discharge using a Stagnation Tube Rake, Venture Meter, and Hastings Meter. (1) Stagnation Tube Rake : Using the stagnation tube rake we record the initial static pressure as well as the moving pressure at 40, 75, and 110 volts. We were also to determine the difference in pressure, the local velocities using Bernoulli’s equation, plot and discuss the velocity distribution, find the mean volumetric flow, the mean velocity of flow for the cross sectional area V=Q/A, determine which stagnation tube best measures the mean velocity, repeat above for second and third flow rates, Q, and note the shape observed from the stagnation tube rake. (2) Venturi Meter : record the static pressure at the 2 points, calculate the height difference, and determine the flow rate in L/s and m3/s. (3) Hasings Meter : Take readings for two flow rates, Q, in m3/min and m3/s and calculate K=Q(venture)/Q(hastings). Procedure: (1) Stagnation Tube Rake : Using the stagnation tube rake we record the initial static pressure as well as the moving pressure. We were also to determine the difference in pressure, the local velocities using Bernoulli’s equation, plot and discuss the velocity distribution, find the mean volumetric flow, the mean velocity of flow for the cross sectional area V=Q/A, determine which stagnation tube best measures the mean velocity, repeat above for second and third flow rates, Q, and note the shape observed from the stagnation tube rake. Equations needed are: V=Q/A U=√(2*g*h*(specific weight of water/specific weight of air)) Specific weight of water = 9732 N/m3 Specific weight of air = 11.08 N/m3 (Both specific weights are at 40 degrees C taken from the table in the back of the fluids book) (2) Venturi Meter

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
