Abstract: An experimental investigation has been made on the pressure-flow behaviour of collapsible tubes, particularly the effects due to upstream pressure and downstream reservoir-head. These and other experimental parameters were systematically varied to determined the pressure-drop versus flow characteristics. Pressure and flow waveforms were also obtained, showing pressure surges downstream of the collapsible tube. It has been found that different pressure-flow characteristics may be obtained depending on the downstream reservoir-head, even though the tube's pressure parameters were maintained similar.
