Chemical Engineering Essentials from Academic Authors - Session Four: Fluid Mechanics for Chemical Engineers - Old and New
- Type: Archived Webinar
- Level: Intermediate
- PDHs: 1.00
This webinar on Fluid Mechanics is organized into two parts. The first part—on “macroscopic” or relatively large-scale phenomena—discusses the basic concepts of mass, energy, and momentum balances at a level commensurate with the requirements for the PE and FE examinations, illustrated with some representative practical applications.
The second part—on “microscopic” or small-scale phenomena—starts with the relatively complicated partial differential mass and momentum equations of fluid motion. Representative solutions of these equations are made by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software, with practical illustrations that include polymer processing, turbulence, non-Newtonian behavior, and microfluidics.
The webinar will benefit those who want a quick review of the basic concepts of fluid mechanics, and who also wish to broaden their horizons into the wide range of opportunities offered by CFD.
Jim Wilkes was born in 1932 in Southampton, England. He obtained his bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from the University of Cambridge in 1955. The English-Speaking Union awarded him a King George VI Memorial Fellowship to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, from which he received a master's degree in 1956 and a PhD in 1963. He was also a faculty member in chemical engineering at the University of Cambridge from 1956 to 1960, and at the University of Michigan from 1960 to 2000. At Michigan, he was department chairman from 1971 to 1977, and assistant dean for...Read more
