# Fluid flow: pumps, pipes and channels

## Abstract

Knowledge of fluid mechanics has become exceedingly great. It is not possible to design rationally for heat and/or mass transfer operations without understanding the fluid mechanics of the process. Unfortunately, few books have been devoted entirely to industrial applications, and even fewer provide design procedures and recommendations for even the most common flow situations that engineers often encounter. This volume originated as a guide for process engineers. Basic calculation methods, design practices and recommendations, in addition to definitions and theorems, are included. It is not intended to be a definitive work. Indeed, many important flow situations, such as slurry flows and two-phase flows, are not treated in this volume. Instead, the book is meant to be an introductory and practical reference text to standard process flow problems. Three types of readers may find this volume useful: (1) engineering students in fluid mechanics; (2) engineers who desire a refresher course in principles and standard calculations; and (3) process engineers in first job positions. The book is divided into two sections. The first is devoted entirely to reviewing basic fluid mechanics principles. The second part of the book applies these principles to problem solving, and a collection of problems and selected solutionsmore »
