I.Introduction

In fluid mechanics, a criterion of whether fluid (liquid or gas) flow is

absolutely steady (streamlined, or laminar) or on the average steady with small

unsteady fluctuations (turbulent). Whenever the Reynolds number is less than

about 2,000, flow in a pipe is generally laminar, whereas, at values greater than

2,000, flow is usually turbulent. Actually, the transition between laminar and

turbulent flow occurs not at a specific value of the Reynolds number but in a range

usually beginning between 1,000 to 2,000 and extending upward to between 3,000

and 5,000.

In 1883 Osborne Reynolds, a British engineer and physicist, demonstrated

that the transition from laminar to turbulent flow in a pipe depends upon the value of

a mathematical quantity equal to the average velocity of flow times the diameter of

the tube times the mass density of the fluid divided by its absolute viscosity. This

mathematical quantity, a pure number without dimensions, became known as the

Reynolds number and was subsequently applied to other types of flow that are

completely enclosed or that involve a moving object completely immersed in a fluid.

Studies have shown that the transition from laminar to turbulent flow in tubes

is not only a function of velocity but also of density and viscosity of the fluid flow in

the tube. These variables are combined into the Reynolds number, which is

dimensionless. Reynolds number can be calculated by the equation,

Where:

is the density of the fluid (kg/m3)

is a characteristic linear dimension,

(travelled length of the fluid; hydraulic diameter when dealing with river

systems) (m)

is the mean velocity of the object relative to the fluid (SI units: m/s)

is the dynamic viscosity of the fluid (Pas or Ns/m or kg/(ms))

is the kinematic viscosity ( = / ) (m/s)

II.Objectives:

1.) To determine the Reynolds number for the different types of flow

of fluids.

2.) To describe the operation of Reynolds Number Determination setup and

the importance of its application.

3.) To describe the effect of pressure on volumetric flow rate, the type of flow

regime manifested and the Reynolds number.

4.) To determine what pressure can achieve laminar, transition and turbulent

type of flow regime.

5.) To distinguish if the Reynolds number computed tally to the flow regime

manifested on dye behavior.

IV.Methodology and Procedure

1.) Prepare the dye solution and the manometer fluid solution composed of

tinge of iodine in chloroform.

2.) Fill with water the overhead tank and receiving tank together with the glass

tube. Make sure no bubbles formed.

3.) Calibrate the fluid inside the manometer to a pressure of 2inHg By adjusting

the metal gradients.

4.) Open the plug cock for the discharge of pipe. Observe and Note the nature

of flow from the filament.

5.) Collect the water from the discharge pipe in a 1L graduated cylinder. Record

the time till the graduated cylinder was filled with water. Then close the valve

afterwards.

6.) Repeat procedure four and five for three trials.

7.) Repeat procedure three to six with pressure of 4inHg, 6inHg, and 8inHg.

VII. Conclusion and Recommendation.

The major factors affecting the fluid flow is fluid velocity and viscosity.

At low velocities fluid flow is laminar, and the fluid can be pictured as a

series of parallel layers, or lamina, moving at different velocities. The fluid friction

between these layers gives rise to viscosity. The viscous stresses within a fluid tend

to stabilize and organize the flow. Thus, as the fluid becomes viscous, the flow

becomes laminar. On the other hand, as the fluid flows more rapidly, it reaches a

velocity, known as the critical velocity, at which the motion changes from laminar to

turbulent, with the formation of eddy currents and vortices that disturb the flow. This

is due to the fluid inertia that tends to disrupt organized flow leading to chaotic

turbulent behavior.

The behavior of the fluid flow is quantified by the Reynolds number.

Reynolds number is defined as the ratio of inertial and viscous force to characterize

the types off low patterns. With increase in flow velocity, the initial forces increase

so as the Reynolds Number. The Reynolds number is significant in the design of a

model of any system in which the effect of viscosity is important in controlling the

velocities or the flow pattern.
