Fluid Mechanics for Chemical Engineers by James O. Wilkes; Stacy BirminghamJames O. Wilkes has updated his expert hands-on fluid mechanics tutorial with a complete introduction to the popular COMSOL Multiphysics 5.2 software package, and ten new COMSOL 5.2 examples. Building on the text that earned Choice Magazine's prestigious Outstanding Academic Titles award, Wilkes offers masterful coverage of key fluid mechanics topics including computing turbulent flows, bubble motion, two-phase flow, fluidization, microfluidics, electro-kinetic flow effects, and computational fluid dynamics. Throughout, he presents more than 300 problems of incrementally greater difficulty, helping students build mastery through realistic practice. Wilkes starts with a macroscopic approach, providing a solid foundation for sizing pumps and operating laboratory and field scale equipment. The first four chapters derive equations needed to size chemical plant equipment, including pipes in packed beds, pumping installation, fluid flow measurement, filtration, and cyclone separation. Next, he moves to a microscopic approach, introducing key principles for modeling more advanced systems and solving industry or graduate-level problems. These chapters start with a simple derivation of the Navier-Stokes equation (NSE), and then introduce assumptions for various flow geometries, helping students reduce equations for easy solution -- analytically, or numerically with COMSOL. Updated COMSOL examples include boundary layer flow, non-Newtonian flow, jet flow, lathe flow, lubrication, momentum diffusion, flow through an orifice plate parallel plate flow, turbulent flow, and more.

Advanced Fluid Mechanics by William P. GraebelFluid mechanics is the study of how fluids behave and interact under various forces and in various applied situations, whether in liquid or gas state or both. The author compiles pertinent information that are introduced in the more advanced classes at the senior level and at the graduate level. "Advanced Fluid Mechanics" courses typically cover a variety of topics involving fluids in various multiple states (phases), with both elastic and non-elastic qualities, and flowing in complex ways. This new text will integrate both the simple stages of fluid mechanics ("Fundamentals") with those involving more complex parameters, including Inviscid Flow in multi-dimensions, Viscous Flow and Turbulence, and a succinct introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics. It will offer exceptional pedagogy, for both classroom use and self-instruction, including many worked-out examples, end-of-chapter problems, and actual computer programs that can be used to reinforce theory with real-world applications. Professional engineers as well as Physicists and Chemists working in the analysis of fluid behavior in complex systems will find the contents of this book useful.All manufacturing companies involved in any sort of systems that encompass fluids and fluid flow analysis (e.g., heat exchangers, air conditioning and refrigeration, chemical processes, etc.) or energy generation (steam boilers, turbines and internal combustion engines, jet propulsion systems, etc.), or fluid systems and fluid power (e.g., hydraulics, piping systems, and so on)will reap the benefits of this text. .

Introduction to Thermo-Fluids Systems Design by André Garcia McDonald; Hugh MagandeA fully comprehensive guide to thermal systems designcovering fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, heat transfer andthermodynamic power cycles Bridging the gap between the fundamental concepts of fluidmechanics, heat transfer and thermodynamics, and the practicaldesign of thermo-fluids components and systems, this textbookfocuses on the design of internal fluid flow systems, coiled heatexchangers and performance analysis of power plant systems. Thetopics are arranged so that each builds upon the previous chapterto convey to the reader that topics are not stand-alone itemsduring the design process, and that they all must come together toproduce a successful design. Because the complete design or modification of modern equipmentand systems requires knowledge of current industry practices, theauthors highlight the use of manufacturer's catalogs toselect equipment, and practical examples are included throughout togive readers an exhaustive illustration of the fundamental aspectsof the design process. Key Features: Demonstrates how industrial equipment and systems are designed,covering the underlying theory and practical application ofthermo-fluid system design Practical rules-of-thumb are included in the text as'Practical Notes' to underline their importance incurrent practice and provide additional information Includes an instructor's manual hosted on thebook's companion website

Environmental Fluid Mechanics covers novel scaling methods for a variety of environmental issues; equations of motion for boundary layers; hydraulic characteristics of open channel flow; surface and internal wave theory; the advection diffusion equation; sediment and associated contaminant transport in lakes and streams; mixed layer modeling in lakes; remediation; transport processes at the air/water interface; and more.
Elementary Fluid Mechanics by Tsutomu KambeThis textbook describes the fundamental OC physicalOCO aspects of fluid flows for beginners of fluid mechanics in physics, mathematics and engineering, from the point of view of modern physics. It also emphasizes the dynamical aspects of fluid motions rather than the static aspects, illustrating vortex motions, waves, geophysical flows, chaos and turbulence. Beginning with the fundamental concepts of the nature of flows and the properties of fluids, the book presents fundamental conservation equations of mass, momentum and energy, and the equations of motion for both inviscid and viscous fluids. In addition to the fundamentals, this book also covers water waves and sound waves, vortex motions, geophysical flows, nonlinear instability, chaos, and turbulence. Furthermore, it includes the chapters on superfluids and the gauge theory of fluid flows. The material in the book emerged from the lecture notes for an intensive course on Elementary Fluid Mechanics for both undergraduate and postgraduate students of theoretical physics given in 2003 and 2004 at the Nankai Institute of Mathematics (Tianjin) in China. Hence, each chapter may be presented separately as a single lecture."

Fluid Flow for Chemical Engineers 1 by F. A. Holland; R. BraggThis major new edition of a popular undergraduate text covers topics of interest to chemical engineers taking courses on fluid flow. These topics include non-Newtonian flow, gas-liquid two-phase flow, pumping and mixing. It expands on the explanations of principles given in the first edition and is more self-contained. Two strong features of the first edition were the extensive derivation of equations and worked examples to illustrate calculation procedures. These have been retained. A new extended introductory chapter has been provided to give the student a thorough basis to understand the methods covered in subsequent chapters.
