Osborne Reynolds’ Demonstration
The equipment reproduces the Osborne Reynolds’ experiment concerning the nature of laminar and turbulent flow. The water coming from the hydraulics bench enters in a tank and is discharged from the bottom through a pipe passing through some glass marbles in order to reduce the water turbulence.
The flow rate through the pipe can be adjusted thanks to a valve placed at the outlet and it can be measured using the volumetric tank of the hydraulics bench. Thus the speed of water can be determined and Reynolds’ number can be calculated. The equipment uses a dye injection system for an easier observation of flow conditions inside the transparent pipe.
