Reynolds number



Reynolds number represent the ratio of the momentum forces to the viscous forces. In die casting Reynolds number play a significant role which determine the flow pattern in the runner and the vent system. The discharge coefficient, , is used in the diagram is determined largely by the number through the value of friction coefficient, f, in side the runner.
