The Hydraulics & Fluid Mechanics Laboratory is used in civil engineering fluid mechanics and water resources classes. The lab is designed to give students hands-on experience with fluid flows.
Water is supplied to various experiments by a large storage tank under the floor of the lab. A Goulds 3796 self-priming pump, capable of producing 1000 gallons per minute of flow at a head of 80 ft, pumps water into a pipe system, past a flow meter, and distributes it to the equipment in the lab. A system of channels is built into the floor of the lab to return water to the storage tank.
Additional equipment is located outside the laboratory, including:
