What is steady-state laminar flow?

Published on June 30th, 2021

Steady-state flow refers to the condition where the fluid properties at a point in the system do not change over time.

Laminar flow means the flow is smooth with layers (or lamina) of fluid sliding smoothly past each other (i.e. there is no convective mixing).

Steady state laminar flow is therefore the maintenance of laminar flow with constant properties.
