On the Pendulation of a Water Column in an Open Vertical U-Tube

Hirose Koji
Fujita Shiro
The friction coefficient for unsteady flow of fluids in pipes has not been studied so well. Usually the friction coefficient for steady flow has been used in place of one for unsteady flow. For a checkup of shis institution, in this paper, the pedulation of water column in an open vertical U-tabe is studied analytically and experimentally. The results of the numerical calculations coincide with the experimental results fairly well.
