... measurements is in the range 8%–16% of the peak maximum velocity. Data were taken at Reynolds numbers of 60, 100, 140, 290, and 350. The data suggest the formation of a vena contracta with either locally turbulent flow or unsteady laminar flow separation early in the tube for the larger Reynolds (Re) numbers...
