NAU Hydraulics Testing Apparatus Team

The Project Scope

The Hydraulics Testing Team (HTC) has produced a self-supporting hydraulics testing system that can demonstrate hydraulic principles, such as hydraulic head, flow rates, pressures, and more. The system is primarily designed for the professors and students of the hydraulics and fluid mechanics courses at Northern Arizona University (NAU). The Water Resources I course currently designs a "Guerilla Project", where the students design their own hydraulics experiment, in which they test one or multiple hydraulic parameters.
