Students in mechanical engineering and analysis: MEE-460, had their lab outside at the fountain by Kennedy Union. The class, which is team taught by Megan Reiss and Bob Lowe, is studying fluid mechanics. Today’s assignment is to examine the fountain, take measurements, and design a water pump that would make the center jets flow, for example, fifteen feet high.
This will demonstrate a relationship between pump size and jet height.
