Laminar Flow

Sign

Expansion

Laminar Flow occurs when a fluid flows in parallel layers, with no disruption between the layers. In laminar flow, the motion of the particles of the fluid is very orderly with particles close to a solid surface moving in straight lines parallel to that surface. Laminar flow is a flow regime characterized by high momentum diffusion and low momentum convection.
