Turbulent flow

TURBULENT FLOW T026

Turbulent flow occurs when the average pipe velocity is high and the energy or velocity head is lost mainly because of turbulence caused by the pipe inside surface roughness.

Turbulent flow is the opposite of laminar flow.

The average velocity at which the liquid flow changes from laminar flow to turbulent flow is not definite and there is a zone where either type of flow can occur.
