Fluid mechanics for chemical engineering.


Fluid mechanics for chemical engineering.

Mory, Mathieu.



422 pages




Mory (chemical engineering, U. of Pau and the Adour Region, France) offers a reference book for chemical engineers who need to understand and use fluid mechanics skills in chemical and process engineering. The book is divided into three parts. The first covers the basics of fluid mechanics and the second addresses mixing phenomena associated with turbulence. The third section introduces the tools of fluid mechanics used in mechanical fluid/solid and fluid/fluid separation processes. Some topics include local equations and global theorems of fluid mechanics, dimensional analysis, pumps, rheometry, micromixing models, and centrifugal separation. The text is crisply and clearly written and well-supported by quality illustrations.
