Osborne Reynolds publicized the work of George Gabriel Stokes by varying the velocity of water in a glass pipe and introducing into it a narrow stream of dyed water to demonstrate the onset of turbulent flow. Reynolds made many contributions to the fields of fluid mechanics, fluid dynamics, and heat transfer as both a scientist and an engineer.
