Design, construction, and operation of models of closed-conduit fluid systems, and interpretation of test data; viscous and inertia forces in flowing fluids of such models, and hence Reynolds number, are predominant factors; general rules for model size, construction, instrumentation, operating Reynolds number ranges, and data analysis are given.
