As part of my chemical engineering degree I have to do a module called fluid flow. Turns out i'm pretty bad at it. I'm trying to find a book which covers as much of the module as possible, with plenty of worked examples.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The syllabus:

Introductory concepts of fluids, units & dimensions, hydrostatics.

Flow, flow regimes, conservation of mass and energy, Bernoulli's equation,

flow measurement.

Conservation of momentum, force-momentum balances, forces on pipework, friction in pipe flows, friction factor, The Moody chart,

rating & designing pipelines.

Flow around objects.

Drag.

Laminar flow, Newton's law of viscosity, Hagen-Poiseuille equation, Pumps, Types, selection,characteristic curves, NPSH.

Can anyone recommend a book or books?
