Laminar Flow vs Turbulent Flow

By: Mr.Rondo

Laminar Flow

Laminar Flow is a type of flow that travels smoothly in regular patterns. Laminar flow can also be known as streamline flow, because of how it flows in a streamline pattern.The word laminae comes from the word laminar which means thin layer.  Aero dynamic is also conneted to laminar flow.


In contrast turbulent flow is the opposite of laminar flow. Turbulent flows in an irregular pattern with chaotic movements. The word turbulent means disorder or not control thats how the word turbulent flow came in.
