laminar depends on the Reynolds No., Re: Re = URρ/η Where U is velocity, R hydraulic radius, ρ density and η is
viscosity Flow is turbulent when Re> 500 to 2000 For a Bingham Fluid, the critical ratio is the Hampton No: H = ρ U2/τc Critical value is 1000 Bottom Line: Turbulent vs. Laminar is probably not a factor E...
