Description

This practical book provides instruction on how to conduct several "hands-on" experiments for laboratory demonstration in the teaching of heat transfer and fluid dynamics. It is an ideal resource for chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, and engineering technology professors and instructors starting a new laboratory or in need of cost-effective and easy to replicate demonstrations. The book details the equipment required to perform each experiment (much of which is made up of materials readily available is most laboratories), along with the required experimental protocol and safety precautions. Background theory is presented for each experiment, as well as sample data collected by students, and a complete analysis and treatment of the data using correlations from the literature.

Reviews

"This book presents 19 hands-on experiments and demonstrations that can be easily replicated at your university. They are budget friendly experiments and many are inexpensive enough to be replicated for small group use in an active-learning session in a classroom. The instructions are clearly written so that you can successfully build and operate them. The author’s indications of the level of precision that you will get with the apparatus are very helpful in planning whether it is appropriate for your purpose. Tips on changes that you might wish to make are included. Best yet, the authors invite you to email them with your questions."
