Selective withdrawal from a fluid with a density stratification has been considered important enough in its applications to warrant considerable theoretical and experimental study in the past decade. The published work of Harleman, Morgan, and Purple; Har;eman, Gooch, and Ippen; Rouse; Craya; Gariel; and Debler, among others, has yielded valuable information in the case of withdrawal from a two-layered system and from a field of continuous density gradient. In the former case, a theoretical study by Huber has attempted to continue the relationships beyond the point of incipient drawdown, which is defined as the condition when both fluids begin to participate in the flow. An attempt to verify, experimentally, the theoretical work reported by Huber is presented herein.
