This section contains information related to the manufacturing of the water table, debugging procedures, executed testing results to ensure customer specifications were met, and operation instructions.

## Budget (Spending Worksheet)

Below is a link to the budget of money actually spent on the project.

Below is a link to the folder containing all of our PO's.

## Build, Test, and Integrate

Documentation of some of the actual water table construction can be found via the link below. These procedures outline how the MSD built the tank.

## Test Plans & Test Results

The water table project was tested using the testing plan developed in MSD I to ensure that the engineering specifications for the project were met. The tests performed and results showing that the specifications were met are summarized in the link below.

### Separation Angle over a Cylinder

One of the specifications called for the verification that the water table was qualitatively accurate by measuring the separation angle over a cylinder. According to theory, the separation angle should occur at 80 degrees from the trailing edge. Testing results from the table yielded a separation angle that agreed with this and validated the accuracy of the table. The link below contains pictures which verify this along with a video using food dye as the flow visualizer found below.

### Uniform Straight Flow

One of the specifications defined by the customer was to provide uniform straight flow. The marginal value for straight uniform flow was 25% of the middle of the channel. Uniform straight flow appears to be provided for ~75% of the middle of the channel flow. Two examples showing uniform straight flow are documented in the two videos below using buoyant beads to demonstrate the streamlines.

### Flow Speed Analysis

Using the beads as used for uniform straight flow and a ruler, video was taken to analyze the flow speed. The flow moved at a max of ~7in/s and a minimum of ~1in/s, outside the bounds of our engineering specifications, thus satisfying the specification.

### Long Exposure Streamlines

Streamline behavior was demonstrated using long exposure photography with exposures of 4-6 seconds. Beads were used as particles and their motion was tracked as they flowed across different test specimen geometries.
