Mini flume

The mini flume is portable and can be set up inside, for example in a classroom or office.

Like the free standing flume and trailer mounted flume, it shows the flow of water in a simple channel, driven by a system of re-circulating pumps, and features scale models of typical engineered structures, including weirs, bridges, culverts and debris screens.

Observers can see in real time how these different structures interact with the flow and what happens under flood conditions.

The mini-flume also provides a powerful demonstration of water safety and highlights the risks associated with fast flowing water near weirs and culvert screens.

Factsheet: Dimensions, demonstration requirements and other vital statistics are available here.
