Chemical Engineering Essentials from Academic Authors - Session Four: Fluid Mechanics for Chemical Engineers - Old and New

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.
