- Demonstration of pipe surge
- Determination of oscillatory characteristics of the surge shaft
- Demonstration of frictional head loss between reservoir and surge shaft
- Comparison between theoretical and measured pressure profiles produced by water hammer
- Using a dual trace storage oscilloscope to record transient water hammer pressure profiles
- Measuring the pressure profile characteristics
- Determination of the velocity of sound through a fluid in a pipe
- Demonstration of the effects of cavitations on subsequent cycles.
- Pipe surge test pipe: stainless steel 22 mm I/D x 3 m long
- Surge shaft : clear acrylic 40 mm I/D x 800 mm H
- Service pump: centrifugal type, delivering 1.35 liters/sec at 3 m H20
- Flow rate measurement: volumetric tank, stepped 0-40 liter high flows 0-6 liter low flows
- Head tank: capacity 45 liters
- A self-contained unit designed to demonstrate the phenomena of pipe surge and water hammer.
- The unit includes two separate test pipes, service module and constant head tank.
- Two pressure transducers provide electrical signals for connection to a dual trace storage oscilloscope with an integral printer output.
- Straight pipes are used, rather than a coiled arrangement, to reduce distortion of the pressure wave.
