The open channel flume simulator is designed to illustrate the basics required to understand the open-channel flow change during flooding and to calculate the discharge at dams. The trainer offers extensive range of experiments as it is an integrated educational system that consists of a large flume and a large number of experimental modules to be inserted in the flume to perform all types of exercises and study the water profiles resulted from theses weirs. The trainer is supplied with a software to control the trainer and take measurement using a remote-control unit.

                                     
  • The trainer is a system that illustrates the basic principles of an Open- Channel flow.
  • The trainer consists of five main units, an open channel flume, experimental modules, an operation and control panel, a remote-control unit with a touch screen and a PC unit.
  • The open channel flume, the operation, control panel, the PC unit are connected to each other by electric and data acquisition cables.
  • The open channel flume consists of reinforced glass sections fixed to a sturdy structure with a shaker plate.
  • The open channel flume acts as a close water cycle as the open channel is supplied with water tanks as supply and drain tanks and a high - power pump.
  • The open channel flume consists of sections of reinforced glass sides and stainless-steel base fixed to a sturdy metal structure with a shaker plate, two of the glass sections are service stations to supply water at steady flow and to drain water back to tanks.
  • The tanks are made from stainless steel.
  • Each section base of the flume has four pressure sensors and four manometers’ connections. Each pressure sensor is coupled with a manometer connection. The couples are positioned at equal spaces along the section.
  • Each section is also provided with holes to fix the experimental modules (weirs).
  • The flume is supported on a right and a lift lifting jacks to incline the flume from 0° to 2.4° using their control panels.
  • The whole trainer is operated electrically from the operation and control unit.
  • The whole trainer can be controlled manually using the operation and control unit or via the software using the remote-control unit.
  • The operation and control unit contains main circuit breakers of the system, safety circuit breakers for the electrical devices contained in the trainer.
  • A software is installed to the remote-control unit to be easy for the trainees to move around the system to observe the flume and control the system at the same time.
  • The PC unit demonstrates the process parameters in case of both manual control mode or software control mode.
