Aids in designing laboratory flumes

January 1, 1971

The upsurge of interest in our environment has caused research and instruction in the flow of water along open channels to become increasingly popular in universities and institutes. This, in turn, has brought a greater demand for properly-designed laboratory flumes. Whatever the reason for your interest, designing and building the flume will take a little preparation. You may choose a pattern exactly like a previous design, or you may follow the more time-consuming method of studying several existing flumes and combine the most desirable features of each.
