Laminar Flow Apparatus

The Laminar Flow Apparatus is for demonstrating and investigating the laminar flow properties of water.

The emergence of currents in water, the flow of current in the case of straight laminar flow and the overflow of differently shaped bodies can be studied with this device. The flow of current at a narrows can also be demonstrated clearly.

How Does the Laminar Flow Apparatus Work?

A rectangular piece of velour paper is placed in the apparatus, which consists of an upper and lower trough.

Due to capillary forces, water from the upper trough is drawn in by the paper. The water flows down into the velour paper, and the flow of water in the upper level is marked with a dye at constant intervals.

Owing to the low speed of flow, approximately 2mm per second, the development of currents can be observed with the help of the dye.

After the velour paper has been dried, a lasting current pattern remains, which can be copied and evaluated.
