The prodromal phase includes the development of lesions in laminar tissue of the hoof, displaying subtle clinical signs, such as increased digital pulse and changes associated with sepsis as congested mucous membranes, tachycardia, increased capillary refill time, anorexia, hyperthermia and intestinal motility reduction (POLLITT, 1999; PARSONS et al., 2007).
The break point from laminar flow to turbulent flow is a phenomenon that initiates at the boundary layer, where viscous forces have a much greater impact.
The first set of results to be discussed is the pressure losses through the stenosis for the three calculation methods (steady laminar, unsteady laminar, and unsteady transitional).
For each curve of constant [chi], there exists an obvious kneepoint, which is deemed as the transition point from laminar to turbulent because of the pressure drop rapidly increasing.
They cover resonances and mixing in near-integrable volume-preserving systems, fluid stirring in a tilted rotating tank, Lagrangian coherent structures, interfacial transfer from stirred laminar flows, the effects of laminar mixing on reaction fronts and patterns, and microfluidic flows of viscoelastic fluids.
Dentre os tipos de erosao (laminar, em sulcos e vocorocas), a erosao laminar se destaca pela combinacao da acao desagregadora do impacto das gotas de chuva (Petan et al., 2010; Santos et al., 2010) com a forca de arrasto, causada pelo escoamento superficial (Decroix et al., 2008; Auerswald et al., 2009).
The authors established a ratio from this observed relationship, which they named "laminar flow ratio."

While classical literature names this bone accident as a tubercle, some authors have proposed a change of denomination to infratemporal spine (Zenker, 1954, 1955; Caceres et al.,) due to their observations where the laminar morphology present the higher frequency, specifically the spiniform subtype.
It can be seen from table that the flow of blood inside aorta is predominantly laminar in nature.
