Description

Computer-Aided Design of Fluid Mixing Equipment: A Guide for Practicing Engineers helps practicing design and operations engineers in solving their agitation and mixing problems. The book provides the practicing engineer with the tools necessary to evaluate the performance of existing agitation and mixing equipment, along with tactics on how to design new equipment using computerized rating and design methods. The most appropriate design techniques are also included in computer programs for solving mixing problems for the practicing engineer.

Excel Program solutions are available through the WEB for all 64+ example problems in the book, as are ClacEdge Example Problem Solutions using generalized computer programs.

Key Features

  • Provides the practicing engineer with the tools necessary to evaluate the performance of existing equipment and to design new equipment using computerized rating and design methods
  • Explains the principles required to understand and use recommended design methods
  • Implements design methods that are readily available and easy-to-use
  • Presents sufficient worked examples–using provided canned programs–to guide the user in analyzing and designing mixing equipment

Readership

Engineers who work in the chemical process industries (including energy, chemicals, food, paper, textiles, minerals), to design, evaluate or replace equipment for a host of mixing applications. An invaluable tool in teaching of a class on industrial mixing
