Book Description

To describe the flow of industrial fluids, the technical literature generally takes either a highly theoretical, specialized approach that can make extracting practical information difficult, or highly practical one that is too simplified and focused on equipment to impart a thorough understanding.

Flow of Industrial Fluids: Theory and Equations takes a novel approach that bridges the gap between theory and practice. In a uniquely structured series of chapters and appendices, it presents the basic theory and equations of fluid flow in a logical, common-sense manner with just the right amount of detail and discussion. Detailed derivations and explanations are relegated to chapter-specific appendices, making both aspects easier to access. The treatment is further organized to address incompressible flow before compressible flow, allowing the more complex theory and associated equations to build on the less complex.

The measurement and control of fluid flow requires a firm understanding of flow phenomena. Engineer or technician, student or professional, if you have to deal with industrial flow processes, pumps, turbines, ejectors, or piping systems, you will find that Flow of Industrial Fluids effectively links theory to practice and builds the kind of insight you need to solve real-world problems.
