Fluid Flow Fundamentals

Keywords

Fluid, Gas, Shear, Viscosity, Density, Laminar, Turbulent

All you need to know about fluids movement.

Description

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.


Learning Objectives

  • Explain the different types of fluids
  • Describe the properties of fluids relevant to fluid flow
  • Explain the different types of fluid flows
  • Explain pump selection and sizing
  • Describe basic calculations related to the flow of fluid
