Why short hoses? - Page 3

post #21 of 24
I am sorry. I used the wrong word! When Reynold's number increases (which is caused by increase in length of the tubing), the flow becomes turbulent (thats the word I intended). Turbulent flow actually increases flow rate.

I'm sorry, but that statement is baffling. Is it possible to provide a link to more information?

As I previously said, tube length is not a factor in determining the Reynolds number. Also, I learned that as the Reynolds number (and turbulence) increases flow rate decreases. So if have a cite to your information I’d appreciate it.

"This observation is in agreement with the fact that the losses in a turbulent flow are much higher than in a laminar flow, and therefore the pressure drop per unit length will be greater, which is reflected in a larger frictional stress at the wall.

I dono guys, but I don't think his WC loop is going to be that complicated. Those D5's have alot of power so I'd bet he will be fine.
