Building my first 8" Nozzle with clear tube.

Post  projeto on Fri Aug 07, 2009 7:12 pm

Here is a CAD drawing of the design i will be using for my clear 8" nozzle. I wanted to try a clear tube to be able to see the water flow. Please let me know if this design looks good.

I will be using a 7mm SolidCore fiber optic with some light source, (have not figured that out yet) any suggestions?

Heres a good source for clear tubing - but its expensive.

Your project looks great.

You could run water through it and then introduce a food coloring or some other dye to study the flow patterns of the water through the entire fountain.

It would give all of us some great insight into the fluid dynamics of laminar flow.
