& Steel Temperature (Cooling Inlet Temperature: 70 F; Heat Input: 1500 BTU/hr) This graph has a steep slope in the laminar flow range (Reynolds number 250 to 2500), revealing that a relatively small change in Reynolds number causes a more pronounced change in mold temperature.
Temperature and velocity distributions for the laminar flow type incubator were shown in Figures 4(a) and 4(b).

Basically, when a wing is generating maximum lift in flight, the top and front of the wing is dominated by laminar flow. The area behind the trailing edge is dominated by turbulent flow.

It can be explained that the existing of solid particles is helpful to keep the laminar flow of the CHS.
The authors established a ratio from this observed relationship, which they named "laminar flow ratio."
Turbulent flow results in a relatively larger airway resistance when compared with laminar flow and a much larger driving pressure is required to produce the same flow rate.
While laminar flow diffusers, what the ASHRAE Handbook refers to as Type E air outlets, (1) appear to always solve the problem of air motion control, they may not adequately do so in all cases.
Laminar flows of Bingham plastic and power law fluids in concentric annuli have been analyzed by Fredrickson and Bird (1958) while laminar flow of Herschel-Bulkley fluids in concentric annuli has been investigated by Hanks (1979) who provided a non-analytical solution, although with some errors (Buchtelova, 1988), together with several tables covering various annulus aspect ratios.
Terra Universal's TerraFlo Horizontal Laminar Flow Station provides an economical work environment that exceeds the most stringent contamination requirements in the pharmaceutical, biotech, electronics, and semiconductor industries.
The Pinnacle R/O II HiFlo also features a radiopaque marker band 5 mm from the tip for enhanced visibility, a laminar flow sheath housing with a 45-degree side tube take-off to improve flow dynamics and a detachable three-way stop cock.
