Introduction to Practical Fluid Flow provides information on the the solution of practical fluid flow and fluid transportation problems through the application of fluid dynamics. Emphasising the solution of practical operating and design problems, the text concentrates on computer-based methods throughout, in keeping with trends in engineering. With a focus on the flow of slurries and non-Newtonian fluids, it will be useful for and engineering students who have to deal with practical fluid flow problems.

Key Features

Emphasises flow of slurries and Non-Newtonian fluids.

Covers the application of fluid dynamics to the solution of practical fluid flow and fluid transportation problems.


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.

Table of Contents

  • Preface; Introduction; Flow of fluids in piping systems; Interaction between fluids and particles; Transportation of slurries; Non-newtonian slurries; Sedimentation and thickening; Index.
