Fluid, Gas, Shear, Viscosity, Density, Laminar, Turbulent
Gas is a fluid. Beer is certainly a fluid. Both needs to be moved around in very specific ways. This lecture reviews the basic concepts related to the flow of fluids and how they apply in a brewery environment. In addition, a series of example calculations for some of the common scenarios important to proper brewery design are explained.
