MATLAB and Simulink Based Books

Fluid Mechanics for Chemical Engineers

Written from a chemical engineering perspective, this comprehensive text covers fluid mechanics from a macroscopic level followed by a microscopic view. Written for the undergraduate and first-year graduate student, the book also bridges the gap between the physicist and the practitioner, providing numerous real-world examples and problems of increasing detail and complexity. The first part of the book covers physical properties; hydrostatics; and the three basic rate laws for mass, energy, and momentum, together with flow through pumps, pipes, and a wide variety of chemical engineering equipment. The second part covers topics such as differential equations of fluid mechanics, viscous-flow problems, irrotational and porous-medium flows, bubble motion, and an introduction to the concepts of non-Newtonian fluids. Also included is a chapter on the use of the Partial Differential Toolbox for solving problems in fluid mechanics.
