Summary

James O. Wilkes has updated his expert hands-on fluid mechanics tutorial with a complete introduction to the popular COMSOL Multiphysics 5.2 software package, and ten new COMSOL 5.2 examples.

 

Building on the text that earned Choice Magazine’s prestigious Outstanding Academic Titles award, Wilkes offers masterful coverage of key fluid mechanics topics including computing turbulent flows, bubble motion, two-phase flow, fluidization, microfluidics, electro-kinetic flow effects, and computational fluid dynamics. Throughout, he presents more than 300 problems of incrementally greater difficulty, helping students build mastery through realistic practice.

 

Wilkes starts with a macroscopic approach, providing a solid foundation for sizing pumps and operating laboratory and field scale equipment. The first four chapters derive equations needed to size chemical plant equipment, including pipes in packed beds, pumping installation, fluid flow measurement, filtration, and cyclone separation. Next, he moves to a microscopic approach, introducing key principles for modeling more advanced systems and solving industry or graduate-level problems. These chapters start with a simple derivation of the Navier-Stokes equation (NSE), and then introduce assumptions for various flow geometries, helping students reduce equations for easy solution -- analytically, or numerically with COMSOL. Updated COMSOL examples include boundary layer flow, non-Newtonian flow, jet flow, lathe flow, lubrication, momentum diffusion, flow through an orifice plate parallel plate flow, turbulent flow, and more.

Author Biography

James O. Wilkes is Professor Emeritus of Chemical Engineering at the University of Michigan, where he served as department chairman and assistant dean for admissions. From 1989 to 1992, he was an Arthur F. Thurnau Professor. Wilkes coauthored Applied Numerical Methods (Wiley, 1969) and Digital Computing and Numerical Methods (Wiley, 1973). He received his bachelor s degree from the University of Cambridge and his M.S. and Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Michigan. His research interests involve numerical methods for solving a wide variety of engineering problems.

Stacy G. Birmingham is the dean of the Albert A. Hopeman, Jr., School of Science, Engineering, and Mathematics at Grove City College and is a professor of mechanical engineering. She received her B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in chemical engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. She began her academic career at the University of Michigan, where she held appointments in both the chemical engineering and macromolecular science & engineering departments. Notable awards include the Presidential Young Investigator Award from the National Science Foundation and the 38E Award for Teaching and Service from the University of Michigan.
