Fluid Mechanics Laboratory

033 Ottensman Hall

This civil engineering facility contains a water filled pit below the floor level with a pump that lifts water to a tank on the top of the building that supplies a flow with constant pressure to several different experimental measurement stations. The laboratory apparatus at the stations allows for the measurement of flow rates, pressures, and friction loss in pipes and flumes. There are also instruments to measure viscosity and density of different fluids.
