ABSTRACT

This experiment is mainly focused in the determination of the fluid flow regime with the aid of Reynolds

number apparatus and the dye as the indicator of which the fluid patterns are to be considered smooth,

unstable or partly smooth/partly unstable. As water flows inside the glass tube and completely filled the tube,

and average velocity of the fluid was calculated from the volumetric flow rate, which is measured by

collecting flow in a 1L beaker during a measured time interval (10s). After gathering all the essential data, a

plot of Reynolds number against volumetric flow rate was generated and discussed.

Generally, this experiment aims to relate the observed flow pattern with that of the calculated Reynolds

number.

flow. Reynolds showed that the behavior depends on

a different pattern of flow, which is termed turbulent

flow. This changed has a marked effect on the forces

acting between the fluid and the solid boundary and an

understanding of the behavior is of fundamental

importance in the study of fluid mechanics.

When fluid flows along a pipe the nature of the flow

determines the pressure loss and hence the power

required to pump the fluid along the pipe. [2]

British Physicist named Osborne Reynolds first

Then, the water from the supply filled completely the

glass tube of the apparatus, and the discharge valve had

been opened slightly allowing enough water to flow out

of the glass tube. After which, the valve that

stopwatch, water from the discharge valve was

collected in a 1L beaker for 10 seconds and the volume

was approximated. From the gathered data, the

volumetric flow rate was calculated. The formula is as

CONCLUSION

[3]

conduction of the experiment. The determination of the

dimensionless parameter which is the ratio of inertia to

that of viscous forces called the Reynolds number was

computed and compared to that of the observed fluid

pattern in the Reynolds number apparatus. Fluid Flow

Regime has 3 types namely Laminar, Turbulent and

Transition region flow. When the fluid flow in the glass

tube with the aid of the dye is smooth and distinct it is

said to be in Laminar flow (NRE <2100), but when the

fluid pattern is erratic and unstable we coin our flow to

be Turbulent (NRE>4000). Between Laminar and

Turbulent arises this so called Transition region flow

(2100<NRE<4000) where the flow pattern is either

laminar (smooth/distinct) or turbulent (unstable/erratic).

From table 1 and figure 3, it can be established that the

Reynolds number is directly proportional to the

volumetric flow rate of the water from the discharge

valve. Parameters such as viscosity and density of water

depend strongly on temperature which can be evaluated

using ChE Handbook by Green and Perry (8th Ed).

It can be commended that inner diameter of the glass

tube must be known. Other than that, the temperature of

the water, the volume of water collected per 10 seconds

must be fabricated in order to attain a viable result.
