Tilting Flow Channel

Description of Tilting Flow Channel

The Tilting Flow Channel apparatus is designed to study the drag of a particle in a liquid under various Reynold numbers. Tilting Flow Channel is done by dropping a particle into a vertical liquid column and timing its fall between two points. Various sizes and density of particles are supplied including stream lined shaped objects. A guide at the top of the tube is provided to minimize disturbance to the liquid. Valves at the bottom of the tubes provide a mean for particle removal with minimum loss of the liquid. A fluorescent tube light at the back of the liquid tube allows clear observation of the particle fall.

Experiments of Tilting Flow Channel


  1. Measurement of drag coefficients of sphere under various Reynold numbers.
  2. Effect of particle shape on rate of fall and drag coefficient.
  3. Effect of boundary layer separation on motion of sphere.
  4. Exploration of dynamic similarity.
