Course Overview

The characteristics of laminar and turbulent flow are very different. To understand why turbulent or laminar flow is desirable in the operation of a particular system, it is necessary to understand the characteristics of laminar and turbulent flow.

This course discusses:

  • Flow regimes
  • Laminar flow
  • Turbulent flow
  • Flow velocity profiles
  • Average (bulk) velocity
  • Viscosity
  • Ideal fluid
  • Reynolds number
