Fluid Mechanics For Chemical Engineering
The book aims at providing to master and PhD students the basic knowledge in fluid mechanics for chemical engineers
Applications to mixing and reaction and to mechanical separation processes are addressed
The first part of the book presents the principles of fluid mechanics used by chemical engineers, with a focus on global theorems for describing the behavior of hydraulic systems
The mechanics of granular media is finally discussed.
The second part deals with turbulence and its application for stirring, mixing and chemical reaction
The third part addresses mechanical separation processes by considering the dynamics of particles in a flow and the processes of filtration, fluidization and centrifugation
