Reverse transition from turbulent flow to laminar flow

After the filling the die cavity, during the solidification process and intensification, the attained turbulence (if exist) is reduced and probably eliminated, i.e. the flow is laminar in a large portion of the solidification process. At present we don't comprehend when the transition point/criteria occurs and we must resort to experiments. It is a hope that some real good experiments using the similarity technique, outline in this book, will be performed. So more knowledge can be gained and hopefully will appear in this book.
