Laminar Flow Table Description and Specifications for Lab Tenders
Laminar Flow Table.
 Floor standing apparatus demonstrates ideal flow, and Hele Shaw principles and is able to accept student made models.  Working section and end tanks made of glass reinforced plastic.  Working section dimensions 606mm x 892mm.  Lower glass plate incorporates 8 sinks/sources in cruciform pattern and viewing graticule.  A system of pipes, valves and manifolds enables any configuration of sinks and sources to be used.  Includes dye injection system, and adjustable knife edge weir for rapid, accurate adjustment of table flow.  Comprehensive instruction manual with illustrations.  Experimental capabilities: ‐ Ideal flow around immersed bodies ‐ cylinder, aerofoil, bluff body ‐ Ideal flow in channels and at boundaries ‐ convergent channel, divergent channel, 90 degree bend, sudden contraction, sudden enlargement, replacement of a streamline by a solid boundary ‐ Ideal flow associated with sinks and sources ‐ formation of Rankine half body, formation of a Rankine oval, circular streamlines from a doublet, superposition of sinks and sources ‐ Use of streamlines to analyse two‐dimensional flow ‐ Research ‐ modelling two‐dimensional systems
