This Osborne Reynolds Demonstration Apparatus is used to display laminar and turbulent
flows. The experimental unit consists of a transparent pipe section through which water
flows, with flow-optimised inlet. A valve can be used to adjust the flow rate in the pipe
section. Ink is injected into the flowing water. A layer of glass beads in the water tank ensures
an even and low-turbulence flow.
During the experiment it is possible to observe the transition from laminar to turbulent flow
after a limiting velocity. The Reynolds number is used to assess whether a flow is laminar or
turbulent. With SMT-FM-09-A the streamlines during laminar or turbulent flow are displayed
in colour with the aid of an injected contrast medium (ink). The experimental results can be
used to determine the critical Reynolds number.
This unit can be operated by Laboratory supply of with ESOLS Hydraulic Bench (SMT-FM-100).
