2 Laminar v. Turbulent h f varies by V n R crit = 2000 f ITRC/BRAE Cal Poly Re = Reynolds number = DV/ ν (full pipe) Derived in Chapter 7 (see also froude number) Froude Number Fr = v/(gA/w 0.5 Fr = v/(gA/w) v = average velocity (m/s) g = acceleration of gravity (m/s 2 ) A = flow area (m 2 ITRC/BRAE Cal Poly A flow area (m ) w = top width of water surface (m) Fr = 1 is critical flow

4 Laminar v. Turbulent h f varies by V n R crit = 2000 f R = reynolds number = DV ν ITRC/BRAE Cal Poly R = reynolds number = DV/ 80 deg F water, 2 in pipe, V crit = 2,000 x 9.3 x 10 -6 ft 2 /s/ (2 in /12 in/ft) = 0.112 fps Laminar v. Turbulent ITRC/BRAE Cal Poly R = reynolds number = DV/ ν Example 80 deg F water, 0.5 in pipe and 12 in pipe, V crit = ? Is laminar flow important to drip irrigators?

5 Hydraulic Radius For non-circular pipes, another factor called the hydraulic radius is used in place of the diameter. By definition, the hydraulic radius is defined as being the cross-sectional area of flow divided by the wetted perimeter - ITRC/BRAE Cal Poly where fluid contacts boundary . R h = A/P Hydraulic Radius Pipe R h = A/P = π r 2 /2 π r = r/2 = D/4 ITRC/BRAE Cal Poly Rectangular Channel R h = A/P = b x y/ (b + 2y)
