ChEn 285 Fluid Dynamics
How Big Is Big?
As a student engineer, you often solve homework problems and generate numbers with units attached. The goal of this lab is to help you gain some intuition on the size or amount of quantities that you may encounter. Another goal is to have you practice the skill of doing rapid estimations of quantities in your head.
Liquid Tank Cart
As a chemical engineer you need strong intuition about how pressure is created in systems that are a pure component vs. a mixture.
External flow refers to fluid moving around the outside of an object. This flow can lead to a drag force (force in opposition to the movement) or a lift force (orthogonal to the movement). In this lab you will investigate drag, terminal velocity, and viscosity.
Pumps, pipes, and fittings are fundamental to chemical engineering processes. The Pump Cart will help you better understand pumps, pipes, fittings, and how performance calculations can be done.
