Overhead Transparencies

A set of more than 350 neatly handwritten black-and-white masters is available for those instructors who are teaching from Fluid Mechanics for Chemical Engineers, 2nd ed., with Microfluidics and CFD and who like to use overhead transparencies. These masters cover most of the material in Chapters 1 though 11, and a few samples are reproduced below. They are available from us (postage included) for $50.00 for U.S.A. addresses or $75.00 for all other countries, payable by check to the University of Michigan. Please send your check to Professor Wilkes at the Department of Chemical Engineering, 3146A H.H. Dow Building, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109–2136. You must then make your own transparencies from these masters.

Overhead Samples: Surface Tension (52K), Centrifugal Filter (45K), Barrel Motion Relative to Flights (57K), Viscoelastic Fluid Behavior (48K)

Solutions Manual

The answers to all of the end-of-chapter problems are available to those instructors who have adopted Fluid Mechanics for Chemical Engineers, 2nd ed., with Microfluidics and CFD as a required text. Requests for the Solutions Manual of more than 500 pages should be directed to:
