SPCH 021 : Fluid Flow And Applications

  • course description:

    The course provides a fundamental understanding in the behavior of fluids, the character of fluids at rest (fluid statics), and the nature of fluids in motion (fluid mechanics or dynamics) with applications to design and analysis of process equipment.

  • course learning outcomes:

    At the end of the course, the participants will be able to;
    - Apply the principle of conservation of energy to fluid flow problems.
    - Apply the principles of conservation of mass and momentum to fluid flow problems.
    - Demonstrate the knowledge of the hydraulic principles involved through the use of complementary computer software.

  • Course outlines:

    - Introduction; Hydrostatics.
    - Macroscopic and microscopic Balances.
    - Flow in Ducts.
    - Flow through Porous Media.
    - Concepts in gas-liquid two–phase flow and compressible fluid.

  • practical aspects of the course:

    - Determination of Reynold’s number.
    - Losses in bends, valves, fittings, sudden contraction and enlargement in the system.

  • who should attend?

    - The course is suitable for;
    - Foreman, supervisors, operators.
    - Graduate chemical engineers working in the chemical process industries at large.

  • duration:
