2 Physics (Of a flow) taking place along constant streamlines, without turbulence.
- Since air in laminar flow has a higher pressure than turbulent air, the laminar flow behind the ball creates less of a ‘sucking’ effect behind the ball which would substantially slow it down.
- When I try to explain the boundary layer, laminar flow, turbulent mixing, entropy, and autopsies to them, there eyes just glaze over.
- The flow was largely laminar, and the streamlines remained remarkably coherent and showed little deviation during the course of the experiment.
