Reynolds number is the dimensionless variable, providing information of flow regime of fluid. It is a ratio of inertial and viscous forces. Up to certain (critical) value of a flow is laminar and after its overrun a flow becomes turbulent. Reynolds number is defined:
In a pipe-like systems the flow regime is laminar for . The flow regime is transient for . And the flow regime is fully turbulent for .
