- Conclusion

This project will furnish a bench-top unit that demonstrates laminar, transitional, and turbulent flow in a pipe using visualization technique similar to the classic experiments of Osborne Reynolds. The unit will be used for classroom demonstrations for beginning (or aspiring!) engineers. Hence, it must be safe, rugged, self-contained, and portable. The unit must be constructed of readily available parts (e.g., from a hardware store) and cost less than $200.

Theoretical Values

Testing Values

- Produced laminar, transitional, and turbulent flow regimes
- Flow regimes were clearly visible
- Reynolds Number for each regime was within the expect values

- Syringe Pump
- Better throttling valves
- Variable output pump
- Dye filtering system (closed system)
- Better injection needle
- Two additional flanged tubes
