The Osborne Reynolds Demonstration Unit, "FME06", designed by EDIBON, allows the study of the laminar, transitional and turbulent regime of a liquid by associating them with the respective Reynolds variable.
The unit consists of a cylindrical tank endowed with a nozzle, that is fitted to a methacrylate pipe, which allows the fluid visualization.
A spillway guarantees the homogeneity of the flow and a needle fitted to the deposit provides the dye. Water is supplied by the Hydraulics Bench (FME00) or the Basic Hydraulic Feed System (FME00/B).
The visualization of the laminar or turbulent regime can be carried out through the flow control valve.
- Observation of the laminar, transition and turbulent regime.
- Study of the velocity profile, reproducing the Osborne Reynolds’s experiment.
- Reynold’s number calculation.
