Objectives

To study the laminar, transitional and turbulent flow along with velocity profile.

To perform a classical Osborne Reynolds experiment concerning fluid flow condition.

Introduction

The apparatus used here to demonstrate critical velocity is based on that used by Professor

Reynolds who demonstrated the nature of the two modes of motion flowing in a tube, example

laminar and turbulent.

Reynolds performed a series of systematic experiments in which water from a constant-head tank

flowed through a clear tube. He injected a thin stream of dye into the flow. In laminar flow, the

dye remained in a thin filament. There was little dispersion of dye, except for slow molecular

action. In turbulent flow, the dye stream dispersed quickly into myriad entangled threads.

Reynolds obtained the loss of pressure head in a pipe at different flow rates by measuring the

loss head (hf) over a known length of pipe (l), from this slope of the hydraulic gradient (i) was

obtained. When Reynolds plotted the results of his investigation of how energy head loss varied

with the velocity of flow, he obtained two distinct regions separated by a transition zone. In the

laminar region the energy loss per unit length of pipe is directly proportional to the mean

velocity. In the turbulent flow region, the energy loss per unit length of pipe is proportional to the

mean velocity raised to some power, . The value of being influenced by the roughness of the

pipe wall. For Example, The dimensionless unit Reynolds number:

(Re) = vd/

and has a value below 2000 for laminar flow and above 4000 for turbulent flow (when any

consistent set of units is used) the transition zone lying in the region of Re 2000 4000

(example lower critical velocity LCV at Reynolds number of 2000 and upper critical velocity

UCV at a Reynolds number of 4000)

Theory

Laminar and turbulent flow Professor Osborne Reynolds (1842-1912) first realized that there

was a critical velocity at which the law relating loss of pressure energy and velocity in pipe

flow changed. He first demonstrated this with his famous Colour Band (on the die-line)

experiment. This consisted of injecting a line jet of dye into the flow of water visible through a

transparent pipe. At low velocities the dye-line was unbroken, but as the 4

velocity of the flow through the pipe was increased, the dye-line broke up and eddies were seen

to form. From this and further experiments, he came to the conclusion that there are two distinct

types of flow: 1. Streamline or Laminar Flow (Latin lamina = layer of thin sheet). The fluid moves in layers

without irregular fluctuation in velocity. Laminar flow occurs at low Reynolds Numbers. (The

flow of oil in bearing is Laminar).

2. Turbulent flow. This results in the fluid particles moving in irregular patterns carrying an

exchange of momentum from one portion of the fluid to another. Reynolds investigated these

two different types of motion and concluded that the parameters which were involved in the flow

characteristics were:

- the density of the fluid kg/m3

V - the velocity of the flow of the fluid m/s.

D - Diameter of pipe m.

- the coefficient of viscosity of the fluid Ns/m2.

(Re)=vd/.

The value of which was concerned with the fluid motion. Fluid motion was found to be laminar

for Re numbers below 2000 and turbulent flows for Re greater than 4000

Experiment Procedure

1.) Fill the reservoir of the dye injector with dye and lower it until it is just above the bellmouth

inlet. With the flow control valve closed, slowly fill the head tank with water to the overflow

level, then close the inlet valve. Open and close flow control valve to admit water to the flow

visualization pipe. Allow the apparatus to stand at least ten minutes before proceeding.

2.) Open the inlet valve slightly until water trickles from the outlet pipe. Then open the control

valve for a small amount, so that a low-speed flow occurs in the pipe. Turn on the valve

controlling the dye injection. The traces of the dye in the flow visualization pipe show the

character of the flow. At first, the dye should remain in a steady, narrow stream, indicating

laminar flow.

3.) Next open the control valve in small increments, so that the flow speed gradually increases.

At a certain flow speed, the flow will become transitional and finally reach a fully turbulent state.

4.) For each flow state, collect water discharging from the flow visualization pipe in the

graduated cylinder. Next, record the volume of water collected and the time required to collect it.

5.) Repeat for increasing flow rates by opening the flow control valve. Take a specific

measurement of flow rate at the critical condition.

6.) Repeat the procedure for decreasing flow rates, taking a specific measurement of flow rate at

the critical condition.

Discussion

Laminar flow-highly ordered fluid motion with smooth streamlines

Transition flow-a flow that contains both laminar and turbulent regions.

Turbulent flow-a highly disordered fluid motion characterized by velocity and

fluctuations.

In this experiment we have to firstly is to observe the characteristic of the flow of the fluid in the

pipe, which can be laminar, transitional, turbulent flow by measuring the Reynolds number and

the behaviour of the flow, secondly to calculate the range for the laminar and turbulent flow and

lastly to prove the Reynolds number is dimensionless by using the Reynolds number formula.

After complete preparing and setup the equipment we run this experiment. But firstly we have

to calculate the area of bell mounted glass tube, the viscosity of water and the density of water.

12

,While the

viscosity of water is 1.0 10kg/ms, this is done for easy step by step calculation.

We observed the purple dye line change with increasing the flow rate of water. The shape

change from thin threads to slightly swirling which still contains smooth thin threads and then

fully swirling. We can say that this change is from laminar flow to transitional flow and then to

turbulent flow.

Conclusion

The laminar flow occurs when the fluid is flowing slowly and the turbulent flow occurs when it

is flowing fast. In transitional flow, the flow switches between laminar and turbulent in a

disorderly pattern. As the water flow rate increases, the Reynolds number calculated also

increase and the dye line change from thin thread to swirling in shape Laminar flow occurs when

the Reynolds number calculated is below 228; transitional flow occurs when Reynolds number

calculated is between 228 and 1600; turbulent flow occurs when Reynolds number calculated is

above 1600. It is proved that the Reynolds equation is dimensionless. Under most practical

conditions, the flow in a circular pipe is laminar Re 228, turbulent for Re 1600 and

transitional in between. That is,

Re 228
