The Properties of Fluids and HydrostaticsBench are designed to demonstrate the properties of fluids and their behaviorunder hydrostatic conditions (fluid at rest). This allows students to developan understanding and knowledge of a wide range of fundamental principles andtechniques, before studying fluids in motion. A variety of measuring devices isincorporated, either fastened to the back of the bench or freestanding. Wateris stored in a stainless steel tank situated at the base of the unit. The watercan be transferred by centrifugal pump, either to an elevated open storage tankconnected to a number of glass tubes for free surface studies.
