This apparatus consists of a Flow channel. Channel isfabricated from transparent Toughened Glass and Stainless Steel together. The equipment is designed to study the various phenomenon of flow with the help of various types of blocks, gates, weirs, and other many types of accessories. Thechannel section is transparent by which user can observe the various flow patterns of fluid in the channel and photographs can be taken. These glass panels are sealed with the stainless steel bed. This channel is floor mounted.Instrument rail is provided along the entire working length of the flume. A scale is provided along with the rail. A pointer gauge is provided to measure the depth of flow that can move on the rail. At the inlet of the flume an inlet tank with stilling and smoothing section is provided for obtaining the excellent velocity profile in the test section. At the discharge side a gate is provided which have an adjustable height. The flow channel is self-contained re-circulating unit provided with sump tank, centrifugal pump, and control valve. Water is circulated through the channel by centrifugal pump.
