Horizontal Osborne Reynolds Demonstrator.
Horizontal Osborne Reynolds Demonstrator Technical Description The experimental pipe section in this unit is horizontal, in contrast to the vertical pipe .The horizontal arrangement enables the ink injection to be controlled more easily. The flow rate in the experimental pipe section can be adjusted with a manual valve. A raised tank with overflow ensures a constant inlet pressure and flow rate. The clear formation of the streamlines enables the transition from laminar to turbulent flow to be observed. The critical Reynolds number is determined by measuring the flow velocity when this transition occurs. The water supply is provided either from the laboratory mains or using the (closed water circuit).
