It is suggested a 6 inch clear plastic ruler be purchased for this purpose. This ruler is also an aid for reading tables and figures. A template of common drawing shapes (squares, circles, etc.) is also recommended. Circles and other curved shapes should be drawn with a template or other instrument (e.g., French curve, ship’s curve, etc). Freehand curves and freehand straight lines are not acceptable.

Class Email Policy: Due to the difficulty in receiving large numbers of emails from students in this course, students will be required to put the string "CHEN2610" in the subject line of ALL emails to the instructor. HOMEWORK: Homework is due at the beginning of the class indicated.  Turn in homework before class starts. Late homework (without an official university/medical excuse) will not be accepted.  The Chemical Engineering Homework Format must be observed. Homework Format Requirements Homework Format Essentials Required HW-Identification Format On "ordinary" homework, labs, projects, and other assignments, you may receive help from classmates (limited to explaining the assignment and necessary approach, locating and explaining errors, etc). On "team" assignments, teams are to work entirely independently without any inter-team communication or assistance. On certain announced "independent" assignments, students are to work entirely without any assistance. In all cases, the work you turn in is to represent your personal effort. ACADEMIC HONESTY ISSUES WILL BE PURSUED BY THE DEPARTMENT.  POSTING OF FILES: At times, the course schedule may contain "dead links" due to revision of the course or renaming of files. Please report any problems in accessing web resources by email to the instructor should you have a need for the information. PLEASE ASK FOR FILE PASSWORDS IF REQUIRED.

This is a 36” line in our water treatment area. Someone tried to start the pumps up that pull off of it without checking to ensure that the valve upstream was open. Oops. I’ve never seen such a large collapsed line before – thought maybe you hadn’t either. At least the pumps are pulling water through the line OK – it’s just the water supply for our turbine generators, no biggie ;) BonusD due W 10 Chapter 10 Major Eqxns Chapter 11 - External Flow: Drag and Lift Drag and Lift  Calculating Drag Forces (6a) "Viscous Internal Flow" (6b) "Minor Losses & Multiple-Pipe Systems" (7a) Boundary Layer Concepts HW23 - 10.7(s), 10.22(s), 10.35(s) F 12 Drag and Lift  Calculating Drag Forces HW24 - 10.43(s), 10.53(s), 10.63(s) M 15 Exam 3 (Focus: Ch 8, 9, 10) Practice Exam 3 Exam 3 Fall 2012 W 17 Review Exam 3 (soln) (stats) F 19 Three Dimensional Bodies Terminal Velocity Pumps & Fans HW25 - 10.75(s) M 22 Chapter 14 - Turbomachinery Pumps and Compressors  "TurboMachinery" (11a) "Pump Performance" (11b)  Centrifugal Pumps BonusD Comments HW26 - 11.14(s), 11.30(s) W 24 Packed Beds (Geankoplis 3.1C)  Fluidized Beds (Geankoplis 3.1D) Video 1 2 3 4 5 6 Chapter 13 - Flow Measurement (if time allows) Link1 Link2 Link3 Link4 Link5 Practice Problems for Packed Beds HW27 - 11.53(s) F 26 Classes End Last Class Session Review and Questions Classes End Classes End Bonus A (Course Journal) PLEASE EMAIL!
