This web site would take you through the senior
design project of team #1 the Osborne Reynolds Flow design group.
To design an Osborne Reynolds flow visualization
apparatus to be used in a class room environment to demonstrate the three main
flow regimes: laminar, turbulent and transitional.
This project will furnish a bench-top unit that
demonstrates laminar, transitional, and turbulent flow in a pipe using
visualization technique similar to the classic experiments of Osborne Reynolds.
The unit will be used for classroom demonstrations for beginning (or
aspiring!) engineers. Hence, it
must be safe, rugged, self-contained, and portable.
The unit must be constructed of readily available parts (e.g., from a
hardware store) and cost less than $200.
Special thanks to Mr. Crisler for his involvement
with the group and his help to finish the project not forgetting all the
suggestion from: Dr. Loren B. Schreiber, Dr. Ravi Chela, Dr.
Pedro Arce Dept. of Chemical Engineering and
Dr. Caesar Luongo Dept. of Mechanical Engineering..
