INTRODUCTION
Introduction Laminar/turbulent Between parallel plates

Introduction
• In a shear flow, velocity varies in the transverse direction
• Particles on different flow lines travel at different speeds

• Shear strain is 𝑑/𝐿, where 𝑑 is displacement of the top part and

𝐿 is the distance of two parallel plates.
Introduction Laminar/turbulent Between parallel plates

Strain rate tensor

• Shear strain rate (velocity gradient) is the rate of change in
strain with time,
(𝑑/𝐿)/∆𝑡 = 𝑢/𝐿
where ∆𝑡 is the time interval.
• The strain rate tensor is

LAMINAR/ TURBULENT FLOW
Introduction Laminar/turbulent Between parallel plates

Laminar vs Turbulent Flows

• Differ greatly in flow features that will be discussed

• Reynolds number

• Ratio of inertia to viscous force

• Reynolds experiment

• Demonstrate the differences between laminar and turbulent

flows
Introduction Laminar/turbulent Between parallel plates

 Re > 4000

• Re < 2000

• For 2000 < Re < 4000, transition flow region

Introduction Laminar/turbulent Between parallel plates

Laminar flow Turbulent flow

• Parabolic velocity profile • Flatter velocity profile across
center of pipe
• 𝑅𝑒 < 2000
• 𝑅𝑒 > 4000
Introduction Laminar/turbulent Between parallel plates

Reynolds number, Re
• Dimensionless number that gives a measure of the ratio of
inertial to viscous forces
𝜌𝑉𝐿
𝑅𝑒 =
𝜇
• where  and  are the mass density and dynamic viscosity of
the fluid, 𝑉 is the average velocity of the flow and 𝐿 is a
characteristic length
• Determine when a fluid flow becomes turbulent

• Laminar flow occurs at low Reynolds number, where viscous

forces are dominant
• Turbulent flow occurs at high Reynolds number, where inertial
forces are dominant
Introduction Laminar/turbulent Between parallel plates

Reynolds Experiment
• Injected fine stream of dye at entrance to
glass tube
• Adjusted flow velocity in glass tube by
opening/ closing outlet valve
• As flow velocity increased, flow changed
from well-order (laminar) to an irregular
and unstable (turbulent) flow

Increase in
flow velocity,
thus increase in
Reynolds
number
Introduction Laminar/turbulent Between parallel plates

• When the outlet valve is opened slightly, the velocity of the flow in the glass
tube is very low and the filament of dye is clearly discernible. (A streak line
or filament line)
• This orderly nature of flow of the dye with a very low velocity gives the
impression that the dye is flowing as a layer of fluid. This slow well ordered
flow is referred to as laminar flow.
Introduction Laminar/turbulent Between parallel plates

• When the outlet valve is further opened progressively, the velocity of the flow
in the glass tube increases progressively.
• As the velocity of the flow increases, the filament of dye gradually begins to
depart from a well ordered filament and becomes increasingly irregular and
reveal an unstable structure.
• This is the transition from a well ordered laminar flow to a highly irregular
turbulent flow where the mixing of the dye is clearly observed.

Candle Smoke Plume

• Laminar and turbulent flow regimes of a candle smoke plume
Introduction Laminar/turbulent Between parallel plates

Turbulent flow
• Continuous interchange of fluid parcels over very short
distances as well as larger parcels over larger distances
• Motion of fluid parcels are superposed on a well-ordered
time-averaged flow
Introduction Laminar/turbulent Between parallel plates

• Exchange of fluid parcels result in shear stresses in the flow,

which may be expressed as
𝜕𝑢
𝜏𝑡 = 𝜂 𝑡
𝜕𝑧
• where 𝜂𝑡 is eddy viscosity and 𝑢 is time-averaged flow in x-
direction.
• Coefficient of kinematic viscosity 𝜈 epends on type of fluid and
temperature
• Eddy viscosity 𝜂𝑡 depends on local conditions of flow, which
are highly unpredictable in a turbulent motion. Range from
several to thousand times the value of 𝜈

EXAMPLE 1
• Consider a pipe with diameter 𝐷 = 0.15 𝑚. Glycerin at 25℃
flows through the pipe. The density of Glycerin is 1258 kg/m3
and 𝜇 = 0.96. The experiment is performed for two cases with
flow velocity 𝑈 = 3.6 𝑚/𝑠. Compute the Reynolds number.
