ZM8112 Drainage and Seepage Tank Vocational Training Tools And Equipment Fluids Engineering Training Equipment
PRACTICAL DEMONSTRATION AND VISUALISATION CAPABILITIES
Ø Flow line visualisation
Ø Flow net construction
Ø Determining seepage rates
Ø Verification of Darcy’s Law
Ø Comparison of experimental results with analytical solutions
Typical student experiments include:
Ø Seepage underneath a sheet pile wall
Ø Seepage through an earth dam
Ø Control of seepage through permeablesoils by sub-soil drainage
Ø Distribution of uplift pressure on hydraulicstructures
Ø Reducing uplift pressure and lateral thrustby drainage
Ø Formation and behaviour of ‘Quicksand’
Ø Stability of an earth dam
Ø Draining an excavation site using wells
• Foundation pressure plate
• Straight permeable membrane
• Curved permeable membrane
• Lateral pressure plate
• Tile drain
Ø A self-contained facility for study of flowthrough permeable media.
Ø The tank has a toughened glass front and aluminium back to permit the insertion ofpressuretappingsas required. Six tappingpoints are provided.
Ø The design of the side supports allows freeaccess to the interior with minimum sightobstruction.
Ø Supply includes sump tank, pump, starter andcontrol valve. Also a dye injection system and
Ø a selection of models.
Ø Comprehensive instruction manual with datasheets and student experiments.
Ø Working section 1500mm x 100mm x 600mm.
Ø Length: 1.60m
Ø Width 0.60m
Ø Height: 1.45m
