41381 Advanced Fluid and Particle Mechanics6cp
Requisite(s): 48641 Fluid Mechanics
This subject extends on the working knowledge of fluid and particle mechanics in the context of chemical process engineering where fluid (liquid or gas) interacts with particulate solids. Key topics in this subject include non-Newtonian flow behaviour, mechanics of particles in a fluid, solid-fluid transport, particle aggregation and agglomeration, and particle transport. Upon the completion of this subject, students are able to describe and model the physical behaviour of fluid-particle systems, and perform design calculations and analyses of typical chemical engineering processes involving non-Newtonian fluids or complex fluid-particle systems.
