Ground Water Flow Unit (SMT-FM-64)

availability: in stock

Specifications:
A bench-standing sand tank capable of
demonstrating, on a small scale, the hydrological
principles of ground water flow.
The unit allows simple three dimensional flow
situations to be set up quickly and measurements of
piezometric levels taken at appropriate positions
within the model under study.
The accompanying instruction manual describes six
basic demonstrations of importance in Engineering
Hydrology.

Description

This bench-mounting apparatus is capable of demonstrating, on a small scale, the
hydrological principles of ground water flow and the applications of these to certain
engineering constructions. The demonstrations are of interest to geologists and geographers
concerned with sub-surface water flows. The equipment is valuable in any practical
coursework related to water resource engineering. Demonstrations of flood risks associated
with land drainage works, the use of wells for water abstraction, de-watering and the
drainage of lakes and polders are all readily performed.
