The EA102 blower is of the two-dimensional parietal jet type and allows the study of the development of the boundary layer on a flat plate. With the plate removed, one can also study the flow of a two-dimensional free-plane jet and calibrate a hot-wire anemometer.

Technical specifications :
  • A centrifugal fan is mounted inside a plenum. It is equipped with a rechargeable filter, a honeycomb for straightening the flow and a mesh grid to reduce residual turbulence.
  • A two-dimensional plexiglass convergent, with a contraction ratio of 30, ensures a good homogeneity of speed at the outlet of the jet.
  • A simple air bypass valve system provides progressive and precise adjustment of the jet outlet speed.
  • The jet is channeled by two vertical walls in transparent plexiglass. One of the two walls, mounted on hinges, provided with a locking device in the open position, facilitates the interventions inside the test line.
  • A traversing device, consisting of a carriage mounted on ball bearings, can be moved along the test line. Its positioning is carried out using an index and a graduated scale fixed on the frame of the test vein.
  • The traversing device allows the vertical displacement of the probes in the median plane of the test vein. The positioning of the probes is carried out thanks to a graduated vernier. A quick fastening device allows the mounting of probes of different diameters.
  • A boundary layer probe is provided as standard.
  • Study of the development of the boundary layer in the case of a plane parietal jet
  • Study of speed profiles
  • Determination of laminar and turbulent boundary layers
  • Search for a dimensionless profile and invariants
  • Study of the local coefficient of friction
  • Study of mass flows and momentum
  • Search for dimensionless invariants
