G1 Heat Transfer in Pipe Flow

Abstract

Pipe flow is always laminar if the Reynolds number is less than Re = 2300, and is said to be turbulent at higher values. There is no doubt that turbulent flow sets in at Re > 104. In the transition region of 2300 < Re < 104, the type of flow is influenced by the nature of the inlet stream and the form of the pipe inlet.
