- Single plates with length-to-width ratios varving from five tc thirty were tested over a flow range near and above the critical velocity. Data from impact pressure readings at the channel exit are compared with static pressure differential along the plate axis. It was found that allowable plate deflection, rather than critical velocity to cause collapse, is the limiting criterion. Static pressure taps in the side plates were used to show magnitude and axial locations of deflections. No conclusive results were obtained with plexiglas plates because uncertainty in interpretation of impact pressure readings and lack of reliable data on the effects of water absorption data are presented graphically and diagrams and photographs are included (J.R.D.)
