Advanced fluid mechanics, particle technology, transient conduction and radiation.
This is a key course in chemical engineering covering fluid mechanics and industrial applications, particle technology and heat transfer. These topics provide the knowledge and tools which enable the design and analysis of many chemical engineering processes. The course includes the following key topics: Fluid Mechanics• Momentum, Navier-Stokes Equations and an introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics (5L, SSP) • Non-Newtonian fluids and flow (5 L, SSP) • Gas-liquid two phase flow (4L), Filtration (3L), Mixing (4L) (SSP),• Particles (size distribution, size measurement, single-particle fluid mechanics) (5L, Erskine) • Fluidisation (3L, Erskine) Heat Transfer (8 L, Erskine)• Thermal radiation• Heat transfer from finned surfaces• Unsteady conductionIt builds on the fluid mechanics and heat transfer taught in ENCH293 and ENCH292.
This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:
