This apparatus is for studying the hydrological principles of ground water flow and application of the flow to certain engineering constructions.
The apparatus consists of a square stainless steel sand tank supported on epoxy painted steel frame. Two horizontal water inlet pipe diffusers are installed at both ends of the sand tank. Two vertical outlet wells are installed next but interior to the inlet diffusers. Both inlet and outlet are controlled by valves to produce various water flow tables and flow rates.
Nineteen tappings with special filter at the base of the tank arranged in orthogonal axes are connected to a manometer at the side of the tank to indicate ground water levels. Outside water supply in required.
Instruction manual is also included.
