Dr. Gilberto Uroz from the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering has been kind enough to allow us to use the teaching flume facility. We will be running several sets of experiments. The first experiment will demonstrate the application of the energy and momentum equations to a hydraulic jump produced by a sluice gate. We will follow this lab procedure, which is used in one of Dr. Uroz's undergraduate Hydraulics Course (CEE 3030). You can work together on the lab and make sure you fill out the table before you finish for the 10 different tests. Please work up the Data Anlaysis for problems 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6.
instructions to me at the beginning of class next Thursday. You may work together on the calculations... be forewarned that the form of equations in his instructions may differ slightly from what we will cover in class. Don't panic, figure out how they are they are similar, and work through the calculations.
