Introduction to Practical Fluid FlowBy
- R. Peter King
Undergraduate students in metallurgical, chemical and civil engineering; Chemical Technicians, referred to as Process Technicians with employment numbers of approximately 75,000, operate equipment, monitor plant processes and analyze plant materials. Employment in this area is expected to increase due to the growing number of agricultural and medicinal products being developed in chemical process plants.33,000 practicing Chemical Engineers will also gain valuable knowledge relating to transport properties of fluids in their work with chemical processing; e.g. petroleum refinery, cleaning solvents and food processing.

This book can be used as a text for either an undergraduate or graduate school course for students in chemical, metallurgical, civil and mining engineering curricula. It is also very useful for engineers who have to deal with the flow and handling of slurries. This fluid mechanics textbook is somewhat different from other such books in that it focuses primarily on the transportation and handling of incompressible fluids, both Newtonian and non-Newtonian, and suspensions of solid particles in liquids that form slurries or pastes. A novel feature of this book is the unified treatment of the friction factor. - Chemical Engineering 2004
