Introduction to Chemical Engineering Fluid Mechanics

Designed for introductory undergraduate courses in fluid mechanics for chemical engineers, this stand-alone textbook illustrates the fundamental concepts and analytical strategies in a rigorous and systematic, yet mathematically accessible manner. Using both traditional and novel applications, it examines key topics such as viscous stresses, surface tension, and the microscopic analysis of incompressible flows which enables students to understand what is important physically in a novel situation and how to use such insights in modeling. The many modern worked examples and end-of-chapter problems provide calculation practice, build confidence in analyzing physical systems, and help develop engineering judgment. The book also features a self-contained summary of the mathematics needed to understand vectors and tensors, and explains solution methods for partial differential equations. Including a full solutions manual for instructors available at www.cambridge.org/deen, this balanced textbook is the ideal resource for a one-semester course.

About the Author

William M. Deen is the Carbon P. Dubbs Professor Emeritus in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He is an author of some 200 research publications in bioengineering, colloid science, membrane science, quantitative physiology, and toxicology, most involving aspects of diffusion or fluid flow. During his 40 years of teaching at MIT, he has focused on undergraduate and graduate fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and mass transfer. He is the author of Analysis of Transport Phenomena (2012), which is used internationally in graduate-level transport courses. Among his awards are the 2012 Bose Award for Excellence in Teaching from the MIT School of Engineering and the 2012 Warren K. Lewis Award for Contributions to Chemical Engineering Education from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.


'Professor Deen has provided many examples illustrating the principles of fluid dynamics in a clear manner, which highlights both important ideas and their generality. A student should find the approach to be one that assists learning and understanding, and an instructor will find many examples, ideas and quality explanations.' Howard Stone, Princeton University, New Jersey 'It is very well written, the explanations are clear and detailed, and it contains numerous original 'real-world' examples and problems.' Andreas Acrivos, Stanford University, California
