Fluid Mechanics for Chemical Engineers, third edition retains the characteristics that made this introductory text a success in prior editions. It is still a book that emphasizes material and energy balances and maintains a practical orientation throughout. No more math is included than is required to understand the concepts presented. To meet the demands of today's market, the author has included many problems suitable for solution by computer. Two brand new chapters are included. The first, on mixing, augments the book's coverage of practical issues encountered in this field. The second, on computational fluid dynamics (CFD), shows students the connection between hand and computational fluid dynamics.
Approximately 30% of the homework problems have been revised or are new.
New Chapter on Two- and Three- Dimensional Fluid Mechanics, Mixing, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
Many new examples and homework problems that are suitable for computer solution are included.
Examples are presented in both SI and English units.
The pump chapter treats not only the centrifugal pumps but also positive displacement and regenerative pumps.
Explicit treatment of jet pumps, with a Bunsen Burner as a solved example.
