Module Code: Title: Weighting: Year of Study: Pass mark: Aims: CEFM209 Department: Chem. Engg. Chemical Engineering Fluid Mechanics 3 credits Coordinator: Rachid Babaa 2 Other lecturers: Hella Tokos 40% The aims of this course is to (i) formulate chemical-engineering fluids problems in mathematical terms by employing the appropriate balances and/or correlations, (ii) to solve the resulting equations using an appropriate solution method, (iii) to analyse experimental and theoretical results in both a qualitative and quantitative manner (vi) to provide basic methods for the analysis of a variety of problems encountered in practical chemical engineering situations On completion, the students will be expected to be able to: Apply fluid mechanics knowledge to the chemical engineering systems. Apply fluid mechanics knowledge to chemical engineering equipment operation, performance, sizing, and selection.
