Length diameter ratio for laminar pods

Laminar pods need to have low length/diameter ratio to get the benefits of laminar flow. Bruce Carmichael recommends length/diameter ratio of 3.33 in his book. I accidentally found also a pdf format article from web which talks about the same thing. You can get if from here:
