Dear Guys,

The tube is composed of two co-axial parts, one is with small diameter and the other is with large diameter. For a certain flow rate of gas, the Reynolds number in the small-diameter part is larger than the critical reynolds number, but the Reynolds number in the large-diameter part is smaller than the critical reynolds number. I did not which model I should use, laminar or turbulent model?
