Fluid Flow Phenomena in Metals Processing outlines the fundamentals of fluid flow theory, emphasizing the potential applications of fluid flow concepts that are illustrated by actual problems drawn from the metallurgical literature.
This book is divided into 10 chapters. Chapters 1 to 4 are devoted to the fundamentals of fluid flow, while Chapters 5 to 9 are concerned with the application of basic concepts to specific systems, such as electromagnetically driven flows, surface tension and natural convection driven flows, multiparticle systems, gas bubbles, and impinging jets. The discussion on flow measurements and introduction to physical modeling are provided in the last chapter.
This publication is suitable for a one semester graduate level course for metallurgy and chemical engineering students.
