Immediately following the Sixth Hydraulics Conference, held at Iowa City in June of 1955, the Iowa Institute of Hydraulic Research conducted an intensive three-week course in experimental techniques, in which twenty-one graduate engineers from various organizations participated. The purpose of the course was not only to acquaint the class with new types of instrumentation, but also to instill in them an appreciation for the methods of research. In the third part of the course, the members of the class were encouraged to undertake short investigations of an original nature, to the end of determining new and publishable information. This paper contains the results of those seven, separate investigations.
