HB 012A HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE, Tilting Submerged Quadrant

This equipment allows the moment caused by a fluid thrust on a wholly or partially submerged plane surface to be measured directly. This surface can be tilted.

A quadrant is hinged on a shaft pivoted on knife edges which coincide with the quadrant center. The quadrant position is adjustable relative to a balance arm such that the submerged plane surface can be tilted. A depth scale is indicated on the quadrant. When the quadrant is immersed in water, there are hydrostatic  forces.

The balance arm has  an  adjustable counter balance and weights with a hanger. The quadrant is  mounted on top of a  clear acrylic tank which allows water to be admitted and drained to required level by a valve. The tank rests on adjustable footings and a bull’s eye level is provided.
