HM 240 Principles of Airflow Print page
Technical Description


The HM 240 is part of a series of units that enable experiments to be performed on flow processes with the aid of a computer. In this case experiments can be performed on air flow in conjunction with accessories.
A radial fan generates a flow speed of approx. 9m/s in a horizontal flow section. The inlet funnel ensures that the flow is low in turbulence and thus that the speed distribution in the intake pipe is homogeneous. The unit is equipped with transducers for temperature and pressure. The following accessories are required for operation: HM 240.01 Data Logging Unit. To measure the electrical power consumption, the HM 240.02 Digital Power Meter is required.

Learning Objectives / Experiments
In conjunction with optionally available accessories, the following experiments are possible:
Determination of the fan characteristic curve
Speed distribution across a pipe
Speed distribution behind a cylinder in a transverse flow
Pressure distribution around a cylinder in a transverse flow
Friction losses in a pipe, a bend, and an elbow
Determination of the cooling curve for a heated copper cylinder
Numerous experiments in the area of air flow
PC data acquisition
