Video of “Dimensional analysis, conservation of volume and the filling box model” demonstration

The “Dimensional analysis, conservation of volume and the filling box model” demonstration takes quite a while to run (say 10 minutes after setup) so a GIF of the video is too large to post here. The full 8 minute video from a test I ran can be found here. Below is a series of images from that test at various times showing the initial wavy interface which eventually settles down. In the test I ran I had trouble getting air bubbles out of the nozzle so the plume water comes out at a slight angle and from a very small area.

I have also included a GIF (full video here) of the constant head tank being turned on showing the water rising up and flowing over the weir wall.
