Fluid Flow for Chemical and Process Engineers


  • F. Holland, Head of the Department of Overseas Education and Development at the University of Salford, UK
  • R. Bragg, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering at UMIST, UK

This major new edition of a popular undergraduate text covers topics of interest to chemical engineers taking courses on fluid flow. These topics include non-Newtonian flow, gas-liquid two-phase flow, pumping and mixing. It expands on the explanations of principles given in the first edition and is more self-contained. Two strong features of the first edition were the extensive derivation of equations and worked examples to illustrate calculation procedures. These have been retained. A new extended introductory chapter has been provided to give the student a thorough basis to understand the methods covered in subsequent chapters.
