The laminar flow streamlines visualization Trainer tends to demonstrate the laminar flow patterns in ideal fluids. The trainer uses water as flowing medium and ink as a contrast medium for better visualization.

                                     
  • The trainer is used to visualize streamline fields for flows around different drag bodies and flow through changes in cross-section.
  • Different drag bodies and changes in cross-section are included with the trainer.
  • The trainer is supplied with a contrast medium tank and injector which ensures excellent visualization of the flow patterns.
  • The bottom plate of the unit contains water connections which generates Sources and sinks
  • The streamlines can be clearly observed through the upper glass plate during flow around and flow through.
  • The water flow rate and the quantity of contrast medium injected can be adjusted by valves.
  • The water connections are also activated by valves and can be combined as required.
  • The trainer is provided with a rubber plate where Individual models can be cut out of it.
  • The experimental unit is positioned easily and securely on the work surface of the main hydraulic unit which supplies water to the trainer.
  • Alternatively, the trainer can be operated by the laboratory supply.
