Steady flow

Steady flow is a type of liquid flow in which

  • The liquid flow is smooth and uniform.
  • The velocity of the fluid at a point remains constant with respect to time.
  • The streamlines do not cross each other.
  • The equipotential lines do not cross each other.
  • Eulerian Velocity is time independent

The Reynolds number can be used to determine the state of fluid flow.
