Description

The book provides all the essential knowledge on the topic of fluid mechanics necessary for chemical engineers.
The first part of the book presents the principles of fluid mechanics used by chemical engineers, with a focus on global theorems for describing the behavior of hydraulic systems. The second part deals with turbulence and its applications in stirring, mixing and chemical reactor applications. The third part of the book addresses mechanical separation processes by considering the dynamics of particles in a flow and the processes of filtration, fluidization and centrifugation. The mechanics of granular media are then examined.
With numerous original illustrations, this book provides a new and easily accessible presentation of the subject of fluid mechanics for the most important application areas in chemical engineering, and is therefore extremely useful for students and practicing engineers.
