In fluid dynamics, laminar flow (or streamline flow) happens when a fluid flows in parallel layers, with no disturbance between the layers.

At low speeds, the fluid tends to flow without parallel blending, and neighboring layers slide past each other like playing cards. There are no cross-flows opposite to the bearing of flow, nor whirlpools or twirls of fluids.

In laminar flow, the movement of the particles of the fluid is systematic with particles near a strong surface moving in straight lines parallel to that surface.

Laminar flow is a flow administration described by high energy dispersion and low force convection.
