DARCY’S LAW APPARATUS
DESCRIPTION :- The set-up consists of a Cylinderical test section filled with pourous medium. Pressure tappings are provided in the test section to measure the pressure drop with the help of differential manometer. Present set-up is self-contained water re-circulating unit, provided with a sump tank and a centrifugal pump etc. Flow control valve and by-pass valve are fitted in water line to conduct the experiment on different flow rates. Flow rate of water is measured with the help of measuring tank and stop watch. EXPERIMENTATION :- To verify Darcy’s law. To find out the coefficient of permeability of a given medium.
