This paper describes a laboratory set-up that introduces undergraduate fluid mechanics student to the concept of two-dimensional flow at bridges. The experiment involves mostly flow visualization using dye injection. The students are asked to identify angles of attack through the bridge opening, areas of ineffective flow and location with dominant eddies.
