Water Tunnel Testing Answered
So, my measurements professor got us permission to fill and fire up the water tunnel in the measurements lab.
For those that don't know, a water tunnel (like the one below), pumps water from one end of a tank to another. The water goes through a conditioning filter (to make the flow nice and even), and then it passes through a tunnel (that blueish area in the picture). You can then add dye or solids to the water to see how a fluid flows over the object.
We're allowed to bring in one item (per person) to put through the tunnel. The tunnel is a little more than a foot wide. What would you like to see in there? After the lab, I'll post up pictures (and possibly video) :)
Keep in mind that the object should be heavier than water (e.g. no balloons :P).
