Synopses & Reviews
*********Text Available as of 2/20/2004!**********Fluid Mechanics for Chemical Engineers, third edition retains the characteristics that made this introductory text a success in prior editions. It is still a book that emphasizes material and energy balances and maintains a practical orientation throughout. No more math is included than is required to understand the concepts presented. To meet the demands of today's market, the author has included many problems suitable for solution by computer. Three brand new chapters are included. Chapter 15 on Two- and Three Dimensional Fluid Mechanics, Chapter 19 on Mixing, and Chapter 20 on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
