Closed conduits model
Two types of energy losses in closed conduits can be studied in this model:
- friction losses (caused by friction at the inner wall of the conduit) and
- local losses (caused by sudden changes in the conduit).
This 4 m long and 0.4 m wide flume is applied to test Bernoulli's energy conservation law. Theory about the hydraulic jump and the functioning of a broad crested weir can be studied.
