Non-Newtonian flow in the process industries: fundamentals by R. P. Chhabra, J.F. Richardson

By R. P. Chhabra, J.F. Richardson

Non-Newtonian fabrics are encountered in nearly all the chemical and procedure industries and an entire figuring out in their nature and circulation features is a vital requirement for engineers and scientists thinking about their formula and dealing with. This booklet will bridge the space among a lot of the hugely theoretical and mathematically complicated paintings of the rheologist and the sensible wishes of these who've to layout and function crops during which those fabrics are dealt with and processed. whilst, quite a few references are incorporated for the advantage of those that have to delve extra deeply into the subject.The place to begin for any paintings on non-newtonian fluids is their characterisation over the diversity of stipulations to which they're more likely to be subjected in the course of manufacture or utilisation, and this subject is handled early on within the booklet in a bankruptcy commissioned from knowledgeable within the box of rheological measurements. assurance of issues is huge and this ebook deals a distinct and wealthy choice of fabric together with the move of unmarried section and multiphase combos in pipes, in packed and fluidised mattress platforms, warmth and mass move in boundary layers and in easy duct flows, and combining etc.An very important and novel function of the e-book is the inclusion of a big variety of labored examples to demonstrate the equipment of calculation. It additionally features a huge collection of difficulties for the reader to take on himself.
