Laminar Flow

LAMINAR FLOW L005

Laminar flow in a pipe is good.

It means that the average velocity of the fluid is low and the loss in head through the lines is mainly because of viscosity.

The liquid particles have no motion next to the pipe walls and flow occurs as a result of the movement of the particles in parallel lines with velocity increasing towards the center of the pipe.

Laminar flow is the opposite of turbulent flow.
