Dear all,

Do any one know how to conclude that the Rynolds number of any flow is a low or high Reynolds number. is there a limit for low and high Reynolds number.

Thanks a lot

anything below around 600 is a laminar (not turbulent) problem, anything above that is turbulent...there is such a thing as a laminar, turbulent, and i suppose very turbulent problem...there are loads of things online on reynolds number. google is a good starting point
