FME06 Osborne - Reynolds' Demonstration
The module consists of a cylindrical tank endowed with anozzle, that is fitted to a methacrylate pipe, which allows the fluid visualization.

A spillway guarantees the homogeneity of the flow and aneedle fitted to the deposit provides the dye. Water issupplied by the Hydraulics Bench (FME00) or the BasicHydraulic Feed System (FME00/B).
The visualization of the laminar or turbulent regime can becarried out through the flow control valve.
