Combining theoretical and empirical perspectives into a clearly organized and comprehensive text, Chemical Engineering Fluid Mechanics, Second Edition discusses the principal behavioral concepts of fluids and the basic methods of analysis for solving a variety of engineering situations. Drawing on the author's 35 years of experience, the book covers the problems and concerns of performance, equipment operation, and sizing and selection from the viewpoint of a process engineer-with real-world engineering problems. It supplies over 400 end-of-chapter problems and examples to reinforce essential concepts and contains over 1100 equations, literature references, illustrations, and tables.
