Understanding Laminar and Turbulent Flow

There are two main types of fluid flow - laminar flow, in which the fluid flows smoothly in layers, and turbulent flow, which is characterised by chaotic motion and large amounts of mixing. In this video we explore the differences between these two flow regimes. We'll cover how Reynolds number can be used to predict which flow regime will occur for a specific set of flow conditions. And we will look at laminar and turbulent flows in pipes, and how the flow regime affects the pressure drop in a pipe. We'll also investigate why it is so difficult to simulate turbulent flow, and we'll look at some of the different Computational Fluid Dynamics methods which can be used to simulate it.
