This significant re-creation of a favored undergraduate textual content covers subject matters of curiosity to chemical engineers taking classes on fluid move. those themes comprise non-Newtonian movement, gas-liquid two-phase circulate, pumping and combining. It expands at the factors of rules given within the first variation and is extra self-contained. powerful beneficial properties of the 1st variation have been the broad derivation of equations and labored examples to demonstrate calculation techniques. those were retained. a brand new prolonged introductory bankruptcy has been supplied to offer the coed an intensive foundation to appreciate the tools lined in next chapters.

In SI units v has the units m2/s. 70 shows that the molar diffusional flux of component A in the y-direction is proportional to the concentration gradient of that component. The constant of proportionality is the molecular diffusivity 9. 69 shows that the heat flux is proportional to the gradient of the quantity pC,T, which represents the. concentration of thermal energy. The constant of proportionality k/pC,, which is often has the units denoted by a, is the thermal diffusivity and this, like 9, m2/s.

8. 17. In order to determine the velocity profile, it is necessary to substitute for 7= using Newton's law of viscosity, thereby introducing the velocity gradient. 53) where B is a constant of integration. 54) This is the equation of a parabola. 49 using Newton's law of viscosity. 56 so two boundary conditions are required. The first is the no-slip condition at r = ri and the second is that the velocity gradient is zero at r = 0. 53. The no-slip boundary condition gives the value of B as before.
