Basic Fluid Mechanics Setups
 
The lab equipped with six experimental set ups to measure and understand the basic principles of fluid mechanics: density, viscosity, specific gravity, pressure, coefficient of discharge of various flow meters, friction loss through pipes, bends, sudden expansion and contraction, stability of floating bodies.
 
     
   
 
 
1. Hydrostatics and Properties of Fluids
 
 
2. Impact of Jet
 
 
3. Flow Measurement
 
 
4. Fluid Friction Apparatus
