Hi everyone, its been a while since i posted on here but i thought i could do with all your help once again lol.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Im in my final year of my degree now and half way through my final year project which is basically to analyse a tidal generator patent show the basic principles with a practical model. So far i am going down the conservation of energy road so we know that all the energy going in (in terms of fluid flow) is what must come out. Now what i want to prove is that a change in pressure (ideally and increase) will accelerate the fluid flow. I plan to do this via the venturi experiment. Now the trouble i am having is designing an experiment that can show this based on my model i plan to create.

The model i have designed is very simple basically a shoe box which allows fluid to flow through it. The area of the housing will be smaller than the vessel the water is flowing in (a tide generator). So i know the initial flow rate in the tide generator as this is set. I then plan to take measurements as the water flows through my designed vessel.

My question is, is there any way in which to improve on what i have or any suggestions in any other experiments i could conduct which must include my designed housing.

All help is greatly appreciated, i did not want to put this in the home work section as i don't really consider it home work, i just want your opinions on what else i can do. Thanks.
