An experimental investigation has been performed to determine the effect of variation in the length-to-diameter ratios on the discharge characteristics of saturated liquids passing through square edge orifices subjected to low pressure differentials. Experiments were performed to confirm reported results for sharp edge orifices and for round edge orifices with appreciable ratios of inlet corner radius to orifice diameter.
