Here is the listing of Best reference books on Process Fluid Mechanics.
|1. “Introduction to Fluid Mechanics” by R.W. Fox, A.T. MacDonald and P.J. Pritchard
Book Review: This is the most highly followed textbook in the field of fluid mechanics. The book provides a balanced and competitive approach to learn the major critical concepts in the field of fluid dynamics. The book also provides problem solving approaches that help the readers to trace out the correct solution thereby linking the results to correct physical behavior. The book also contains numerous examples as well as problems at the end of every chapter.
|2. “Fluid Mechanics for Chemical Engineers with Microfluidics and CFD” by J.O. Wilkes
Book Review: This book provides a solid understanding of fluid dynamics. The book also helps in solving problems that occur in various fields like biochemical, chemical, mining, petroleum, polymer and waste management industries. The book covers recent advancements made in the field of microfluidics, computational fluid dynamics and also addresses problems that occur in turbulent mixing and recirculating flows. The book also contains chapters on macroscopic fluid mechanics, hydrostatics, mass, energy and momentum laws and many more.
|3. “Process Fluid Mechanics” by M.Denn
Book Review: This book provides an application based foundation to process fluid dynamics. The book contains chapters on differential equations of fluid dynamics, viscous flow problems like polymer processing, porous media flows, turbulent flows, bubble motion, microfluids, electrophoresis, COMSOL multiphysics and many more. The book is known for its innovative research and advanced concepts coverage. This book is useful to students studying in all the streams of engineering who deal with fluid dynamics.
|4. “Fluid Mechanics and its Applications” by V.Gupta and S.K. Gupta
Book Review: This is a very good textbook on fluid dynamics for students of all streams who deal with fluid flow phenomena and its modeling. The book enables the students to give more importance to basics of physical concepts by not focusing on mathematical concepts in detail. The book contains chapters on euler acceleration formula, Reynolds transport theorem, Bernoulli equation and many more approximations. The book illustrates the applications with the help of solved numericals .
|5. “Transport Phenomena” by R.B. Bird, W.E. Stewart and E.N. Lightfoot
Book Review: This book covers detailed information about heat transfer, dimensional analysis basics, polymer flow concepts, discussions on convective momentum, energy transport, mass transport, two phase system transport and many more. The book provides a perfect balance between transport phenomena basics and this is the major reason for the success of the book. The book also corrects all the errors that had occurred in the previous editions so far.
