Hydraulic Jump Flume

Joel Pertzsch, Chris Van Schepen, Devin Williams

Sponsor: Dordt College engineering department

An open channel fluid flume was designed and constructed for use in demonstration and experimentation of hydraulic jump and other phenomena in fluid mechanics and civil engineering. The design of the apparatus was inspired by other commercially available flumes. The project was completed for a fraction of the cost of commercially available units, and was constructed such that additional equipment can easily be implemented in the future.
