Denn's book is an excellent introductory text for chemical engineering fluid mechanics. The book starts off with the basics of dim-analysis and proceeds into macro and then micro problems. This is a very logical ordering and allows the student to see the subject from a broader perspective instead of getting bogged down in the systematics of the problems themselves. A careful reading is definitely needed to get the most out of the book, though. And the section on turbulence is a bit unclear. Overall, though, a good book to keep for many years to come as a chem eng.

Denn's book manages to address the key fluid mechanics topics of relevance to chemical engineering, such as microscopic balances, lubrication approx., dimensional analysis, & creeping flow. This textbook is used at leading institutions such as UC Berkeley, MIT, Princeton, & Cornell. Using BSL as a reference for fully worked out examples and problems, Denn's textbook covers essential material for graduate school and industrial research.

"Process Fluid Mechanics" is a very satisfactory introductory text on chemical engineering fluid mechanics. Denn shows the basics of fluid mechanics in a concise, mathematical, and theoretical manner. A must-have for any beginning chemcical engineering fluid mechanics class.

Denn has managed to make even a book about fluids seem dry. Denn has managed to write a book which is useless as a textbook, and of questionable value as reference material.
