Orifice plate study in water tunnel

  1. Sep 10, 2010 #1
    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.
