ABSTRACT FABRICATION AND ANALYSIS OF REYNOLD’S EXPERIMENT SETUP.
SIGNIFICANCE OF WORK
The purpose of the project is to study the effect of Reynolds number, a dimensionless quantity, on pipe flow. Reynolds number aids in classifying the flow as laminar, transition or turbulent.
OBJECTIVE OF THE WORK
1. 2. 3.
The first objective of the project is fabrication of Reynolds experiment setup. The second objective is to find the critical velocity; that is, the velocity at which laminar flow changes to turbulent. The final objective is to experimentally determine the range of Reynolds’s number for laminar flow.
The set up consist of an upper water reservoir to which water is continuously fed. The water level is kept constant by means of an overflow system, where excess water is...
