Laminar flow

In fluid dynamics, laminar flow is characterized by fluid particles following smooth paths in layers, with each layer moving smoothly past the adjacent layers with little or no mixing. At low velocities, the fluid tends to flow without lateral mixing, adjacent layers slide past one another like playing cards. There are eddies or swirls of fluids. In laminar flow, the motion of the particles of the fluid is orderly with particles close to a solid surface moving in straight lines parallel to that surface. Laminar flow is a flow regime characterized by low momentum convection; when a fluid is flowing through a closed channel such as a pipe or between two flat plates, either of two types of flow may occur depending on the velocity and viscosity of the fluid: laminar flow or turbulent flow. Laminar flow occurs below a threshold at which the flow becomes turbulent; the velocity is determined by a dimensionless parameter characterizing the flow called the Reynolds number, which depends on the viscosity and density of the fluid and dimensions of the channel.

Turbulent flow is a less orderly flow regime, characterized by eddies or small packets of fluid particles, which result in lateral mixing. In non-scientific terms, laminar flow is smooth; the type of flow occurring in a fluid in a channel is important in fluid-dynamics problems and subsequently affects heat and mass transfer in fluid systems. The dimensionless Reynolds number is an important parameter in the equations that describe whether developed flow conditions lead to laminar or turbulent flow; the Reynolds number is the ratio of the inertial force to the shearing force of the fluid: how fast the fluid is moving relative to how viscous it is, irrespective of the scale of the fluid system. Laminar flow occurs when the fluid is moving or the fluid is viscous; as the Reynolds number increases, such as by increasing the flow rate of the fluid, the flow will transition from laminar to turbulent flow at a specific range of Reynolds numbers, the laminar–turbulent transition range depending on small disturbance levels in the fluid or imperfections in the flow system.

If the Reynolds number is small, much less than 1 the fluid will exhibit Stokes, or creeping, where the viscous forces of the fluid dominate the inertial forces. The specific calculation of the Reynolds number, the values where laminar flow occurs, will depend on the geometry of the flow system and flow pattern; the common example is flow through a pipe, where the Reynolds number is defined as R e = ρ u D H μ = u D H ν = Q D H ν A, where: DH is the hydraulic diameter of the pipe. For such systems, laminar flow occurs when the Reynolds number is below a critical value of 2,040, though the transition range is between 1,800 and 2,100. For fluid systems occurring on external surfaces, such as flow past objects suspended in the fluid, other definitions for Reynolds numbers can be used to predict the type of flow around the object; the particle Reynolds number Rep would be used for particle suspended in flowing fluids, for example. As with flow in pipes, laminar flow occurs with lower Reynolds numbers, while turbulent flow and related phenomena, such as vortex shedding, occur with higher Reynolds numbers.

A common application of laminar flow is in the smooth flow of a viscous liquid through a tube or pipe. In that case, the velocity of flow varies from zero at the walls to a maximum along the cross-sectional centre of the vessel; the flow profile of laminar flow in a tube can be calculated by dividing the flow into thin cylindrical elements and applying the viscous force to them. Another example is the flow of air over an aircraft wing; the boundary layer is a thin sheet of air lying over the surface of the wing. Because air has viscosity, this layer of air tends to adhere to the wing; as the wing moves forward through the air, the boundary layer at first flows smoothly over the streamlined shape of the airfoil. Here, the flow is laminar and the boundary layer is a laminar layer. Prandtl applied the concept of the laminar boundary layer to airfoils in 1904. An everyday example is the slow and optically transparent flow of shallow water over a smooth barrier; when water leaves a tap with little force, it first exhibits laminar flow, but as acceleration by the force of gravity sets in, the Reynolds number of the flow increases with speed, the laminar flow can transition to turbulent flow.

Optical transparency is reduced or lost entirely. In waterfalls a large scale version of examples 3 and 4 occurs, as now broad sheets of smoothly flowing water fall over a ridge or edge of the waterfall; the transition to turbulence sets in with speed due to acceleration and foamy aerated water obscures the falling flow. Laminar airflow is used to separate volumes of air, or prevent airborne contaminants from entering an area. Laminar f

Torric Jebrin

Torric Jebrin is a Ghanaian footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Dr Congo club TP Mazembe. He began his career at Hearts of Oak. On 3 November 2008 it was announced, that Jebrin had signed a three-year contract with English club Portsmouth FC, collaboration club of Hearts of Oak. Jebrin had been on several trials at the club, during that, he was watched by Arsenal during a match. Chelsea, Atlético Madrid and Inter Milan were all keen to have the player on trials, but his management did not want to masquerade the player at various club trials. Hearts and Portsmouth FC agreed and signed papers in the matter of Jebrin transferring to Portsmouth FC via a club in Belgium from the 1st January 2009. Jebrin was entered in an educational program in Belgium and in England paid for by Portsmouth; the plan was to loan him out to a Belgian club and was loaned out to S. V. Zulte Waregem. In January 2011, Jebrin signed half year deal with Turkish side Bucaspor, he played for the club 26 times, scoring three goals.

In December 2011, Jebrin completed a controversial move to Trabzonspor on a free transfer after terminating his contract with Bucaspor a month earlier without justification. Bucaspor released a statement that Trabzonspor enticed the footballer in violation of transfer regulations and Bucaspor's legal board had filed a complaint with the Turkish Football Federation demanding Trabzonspor receive a transfer ban for their actions. In 31 July Ismaily SC in Egypt announcement on sign a contract with Jebrin for 3 years on free transfer. Jebrin said that he is happy to sign a contract with a big club in Africa and in Arab region and Egypt, he has played for the local national team for home based players and débuted at the age of just 15 against Niger in April 2008, attempting to qualify for the first edition of the African Nations Championship, the new competition for home based African players.
