CH E 330 Process Fluid Mechanics (3)
This course introduces the principles of fluid mechanics that are of fundamental importance to chemical engineers. The list of topics discussed in this course include the mechanical principles governing fluid flow, stress in a fluid, conservation of mass and momentum, using differential and integral balances, elementary constitutive equations, hydrostatics, exact solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations, approximate solutions using control volume analysis, mechanical energy balances and Bernoulli's equation, dimensional analysis and dynamic similarity, and introduction to boundary-layer theory and turbulence.
