Computer-Aided Design of Fluid Mixing Equipment: A Guide and Tool for Practicing Engineers helps practicing design and operations engineers in solving their agitation and mixing problems. The book provides the practicing engineer with the tools necessary to evaluate the performance of existing agitation and mixing equipment, along with tactics on how to design new equipment using computerized rating and design methods. The most appropriate design techniques are also included in computer programs for solving mixing problems for the practicing engineer.
Excel solutions are available through the WEB for 40 example problems in the book. WEB based, general purpose CalcEdge design programs are also available; the TK6 source codes are also available.
