Chemical Engineering Professor (MSc & PhD). Chemical and Process Engineering Tutoring for understanding & success. Let´s plan personalized and sucessful tutorship. Send me a direct message for discuss your needs...
My focus is that a good understanding of physical phenomena leads to a successful problem solving. Therefore, during tutoring I try to identify where the "misleading logic" used by you leads to wrong results and, then, help you to build a "proper thinking logic" able to guide you to sucessful problem analysis.
I can also help you in last minute assignements but I really prefer a planned problem solving where I can stop over the details and help you to go ahead in the fascinating world of the chemical process engineening.
My fields are mainly in Thermodynamics and Transport Phenomena. English or Spanish turoring in Chem Eng

(*) FLUID MECHANICS, FLUID FLOW, LIQUID AND GASES PIPEFLOW, PUMPING SYSTEMS (Fluid statics, fluid statics, fluid dynamics, fluid flow continuity, continuity law, linear momentum balance, movement equation, Bernoulli´s Theorem, Pascal Principle, drag force on a particle, Flow meters (venturi meter, orifice meter, etc), U-tube manometers calculations, Reynolds number, Friction coefficient, Darcy-Weisbach, Pipe losses, Energy requirements of a pipeline, multiphase flow, two-phase flow, Coupling pipeline systems with pumps: Resistance curve versus pump curve, pump power requirement, pump shaft work, centrifugal pumps, positive displacement pumps, Pump selection: Pump Selection Systems (ITT-Goulds and others) using many texbooks, like Cengel, Munson et al, White, Mott, using of the Hydroflow and PumpBase tools (tied to the Mott book) but also introducing Inplant or PipePhase to compare self-made calculation (for example, Excel or Matlab) with simulation packages
(*) HEAT TRANSFER, HEAT EXCHANGERS DESIGN AND EVALUATION
(*) MASS TRANSFER
(*) SEPARATION PROCESSES Distillation, Absortion and Stripping, Extraction, Drying and Humidification
(*) PROCESS ENGINEERING AND DESIGN: HYSYS and PRO-II simulation.
(*) CHEMICAL ENGINEERING LABORATORIES: data analysis for experiments in Fluid flow, Heat transfer, Mass transfer, Separation processes, Physical Properties, etc.
(*) FLUID-PARTICLE SYSTEMS; SOLID-LIQUID SEPARATIONS; FILTRATION, SEDIMENTATION & CENTRIFUGATION; PARTICLE SIZE ANALYSYS: My research expertise is in solid/liquid systems (slurries, suspensions) to be filtered, settled or centrifuged or to be proper mixed. Special emphasys on particle size distribution analysis by several methods like laser difraction or light scattering, sieving, photosedimentation, electrozone (coulter counter principle), filter cake permeability, filter cake porosity, filter cake capillary pressure curve, Darcy´s Law, Stoke´s Law, fluidization regime, minimum fluidization velocity, fluidized beds
(*) Estudiantes de Ingeniería Química de habla hispana podrían recibir explicaciones claves en español. Spanish-speaking students are welcome to ask for some lessons or sessions in spanish in order to better understand key concepts.
