The treatment is from the viewpoint of the process engineer, who is concerned with equipment operation, perfor- mance, sizing, and selection, as opposed to the details of mechanical design or the details of ?ow patterns in such situations. For the student, this is a basic text for a ?rst-level course in process engineering?uidmechanics,whichemphasizesthesystematicapplicationof fundamental principles (e.g., macroscopic mass, energy, and momentum balances and economics) to the analysis of a variety of ?uid problems of a practical nature.

This book includes numerous problems that illus- trate these applications at the end of each chapter. For the practicing engineer, this book serves as a useful reference for the working equations that govern many applications of practical interest, as well as a source for basic principles needed to analyze other ?uid systems not covered explicitly in the book.

Chemical Engineering Fluid Mechanics is based on notes that I have complied and continually revised while teaching the junior-level ?uid mechanics course for chemical engineering students at Texas A&M University over the last 30 years. It has been my experience that, when being introduced to a new subject, students learn best by starting with simple special cases that they can easily relate to physically, and then pro- gressing to more generalized formulations and more complex problems. That is the philosophy adopted in this book. It will certainly be criticized by some, since it is contrary to the usual procedure followed by most text- books, in which the basic principles are presented ?rst in the most general and mathematical form (e.g., the divergence theorem, Reynolds transport theorem, Navier Stokes equations, etc.), and the special cases are then derived from these. Esoterically, it is very appealing to progress from the general to the speci?c, rather than vice versa. However, having taught from both perspectives, it is my observation that most beginning students do not gain an appreciation or understanding from the very general, mathemati- callycomplex,theoreticalvectorexpressionsuntiltheyhavegainedacertain physicalfeelforhow?uidsbehave,andthelawsgoverningtheirbehavior,in special situations to which they can easily relate.

They also understand and appreciate the principles much better if they see how they can be applied to theanalysisofpracticalandusefulsituations,withresultsthatactuallywork iv Preface in practice. That is why the multi-dimensional vector generalizations of the basic conservations laws have been eschewed in favor of the simpler component and one-dimensional form of these laws. Itisalsoimportanttomaintainabalancedperspectivebetweenfunda- mental, or theoretical, and empirical information, for the practicing engineer must use both to be effective. It has been said that all the tools of mathematics and physics in the world are not suf?cient to calculate how much water will ?ow in a given time from a kitchen tap when it is opened. However, by proper formulation and utilization of certain experimental observations, this is a routine problem for the engineer. The engineer must be able to solve certain problems by direct application of theoretical principles only (e.g., laminar ?ow in uniform conduits), others by utilizing hypothetical models that account for a limited understanding of the basic ?ow phenomena by incorporation of empirical parameters (e.g., :turbulent ?ow in conduits and ?ttings), and still other problems in which important information is purely empirical (e.g., pump ef?ciencies, two-phase ?ow in packed columns). In many of these problems (of all types), application of dimensional analysis (or the principle of â€˜â€˜conservation of dimensionsâ€™â€™) for generalizingtheresultsofspeci?canalysis,guidingexperimentaldesign,and scaling up both theoretical and experimental results can be a very powerful tool. This second edition of the book includes a new chapter on two-phase ?ow, which deals with solidâ€“liquid, solidâ€“gas, and frozen and ?ashing liquidâ€“gas systems, as well as revised, updated, and extended material throughout each chapter. For example, the method for selecting the proper control valve trim to use with a given piping con?guration is presented and illustrated by example in Chapter 10. The section on cyclone separators has been completely revised and updated, and new material has been incorpo- rated in a revision of the material on particles in non-Newtonian ?uids. Changes have made throughout the book in an attempt to improve the clarity and utility of the presentation wherever possible. For example, the equationsfor compressible?ow inpipes havebeenreformulatedintermsof variables that are easier to evaluate and represent in dimensionless form. It is the aim of this book to provide a useful introduction to the simpli?ed form of basic governing equations and an illustration of a con- sistentmethodofapplyingthesetotheanalysisofavarietyofpractical?ow problems. Hopefully, the reader will use this as a starting point to delve more deeply into the limitless expanse of the world of ?uid mechanics. Ron Darby Preface vRead More
