Orifice plate study in water tunnel

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

I am tasked to design an orifice plate to be inserted into a water tunnel in an experiment and do a research on the dynamics of the fluid movement.

The problem is that the currently water tunnel facility is already available in my lab. The water tank is very similar to a normal aquarium tank and I am having a mental block on how to go about it.

I am able to mount a sort of a holder on top of the tank and the piece of orifice plate and be firmly held in place.

The problem lies in the bottom part of the tank. I had no idea how to mount orifice at the bottom of the tank.

I had attached some of the draft design in this thread. Hope someone can give me some suggestion or guidelines.

Thanks alot

It's not very clear from your drawing is this a square section tank? And is it open at the top?

Hi, I am so sorry for the unclear drawing. It is a rectangular tank with an opening on the top.
