HB 024 OSBORNE REYNOLDS APPARATUS
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

This equipment provides laminar, transitional, and turbulent flow as predicted by Osborne Reynolds. It is to be used with Hydraulics Bench i.e. HB100 or HB100N (separately supplied).

It consists of a removable clear acrylic cylinder with an adjustable overflow pipe. Water is admitted at the bottom of the tank through a diffuser and stilling materials, and is discharged via a bell mouth transparent vertical test pipe with a flow control valve at the end. Flow rate is measured by a measuring cup. A dye injection system is installed on top of the acrylic cylinder tank and flow patterns in the pipe can be observed against a white background plate.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • Visualization of laminar, transition and turbulent flow
  • Determination of the critical Reynolds number
