CHEM ENG 3035 - Multi-Phase Fluid & Particle Mechanics

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2014

This course aims to introduce you to the fundamentals fluid and particle mechanics as applied to the handling, processing and transport of multiphase systems. The focus will be on industrial processes where fluid (liquid or gas) flowing in the presence of particulate solids is encountered. Key topics covered include: particulate systems; mechanics of particles in a fluid; flow through porous media; sedimentation; fluidisation; solid-fluid transport. By the end of this course you should be able to characterise and describe fluid-particle systems in terms of their basic physical properties, and perform basic design calculations and analyses of various typical industrial processes involving fluid and particle systems.
